"My Angelo was a member of the Academy of Chief and she spoke at a number of academy events during the nineteen ninety s during those talks, she didn't give much detail about the traumas of her early life, or for that matter about her extraordinary years as a writer performer and civil rights activist. All that had been documented already very well in her seven memoir. Starting with I know why the caged bird sings. Instead she talked about the lessons she'd learned from overcoming odds that were clearly stacked against her lessons. That might help others. These Academy of achievement events were for students from around the country and MS Angelo's heart was never bigger than when she had the chance to inspire young people. As you listen, you'll occasionally hear a question from someone in the audience, but we'll. We'll start with my Angelo herself here, explaining why as a child, she suddenly fell silent, as spoke until I was seven and a half, and then seven and a half I was raped and the man, I, told the name of the rapist to my family, he was put in jail.

You will never love poetry so I don't want to hear you speak. To you. Tim I will not read anything you write. And I wept for six months and I moved around to around and lunch and he kept harassing me. Until finally, I went under the house. With a book of poetry and I tried to speak ahead voice. And, there's you see. I've almost not stopped. My Angela was not the name she was born with her given name was. Marguerite Anne Johnson her brother nicknamed her Maya. The rape she describes was in nineteen, thirty five, and the man who assaulted her was her mother's boyfriend. It was her uncle who killed him in revenge. Years after Angelo rediscovered her voice. She won a scholarship to study dance and drama at the California Labor School. That's also where she got her first taste for political activism. Ngelo graduated at sixteen just weeks before giving birth to a son named guy, she wouldn't take money from her mother, and she wouldn't go on welfare, so she began the life of a single mother, working as a waitress and cook and making herself read.
