HER JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE
Ms Angelou¿s A Song Flung Up To Heaven is a collection of her memoirs collaborated together to form this book of great historical events and how they effected her life. I was surprised at some of the events that have taken place in her life and how she chose to handle them. I was also baffled at the lifestyle she was living while networking with some of the black elite entertainers and leaders, which demonstrates it is not what you know but who you know. Ms Angelou hits hardest on her relationships with James Baldwin and the African, whom she never names. Although I thought she should have gone into more detail about her son Guy, she did express her love for him as well as her brother who had a profound affect on her stability as a woman. Ms. Angelou highlighted the Watts riots that took place in the 60¿s and all though she went into great detail about the riots, I think I may have missed the effects it had on her, nonetheless the actual events were well written and educational. I would definitely recommend this book. Stacy CampbellWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I always enjoy Maya Angelou's beautiful writing. I especially continue to look forward to any words written about her mother. She seemed so together, and would I have loved to have had her for a sounding board about'anything.' The book is a sweet read and perfect for a rainy afternoon sojourn.Was this review helpful?
