"Gather Together in My Name" continues Maya Angelou s personal story, begun so unforgettably in "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings." The time is the end of World War II and there is a sense of optimism everywhere. Maya Angelou, still in her teens, has given birth to a son. But the next few years are difficult ones as she tries to find a place in the world for herself and her child. She goes from job to job and from man to man. She tries to return home back to Stamps, Arkansas but discovers that she is no longer part of that world. Then Maya s life takes a dramatic turn, and she faces new challenges and temptations. In this second volume of her poignant autobiographical series, Maya Angelou powerfully captures the struggles and triumphs of her passionate life with dignity, wisdom, humor, and humanity."
