MAYA ANGELOU, Poet, Educator, Hisorian, Actress, playwrights
AMERICA'S RENAISSANCE WOMAN Maya Angelou was born Marguerite Annie Johnson in St. Louis, Missouri. Her parents divorced when she was only three and she was sent with her brother Bailey to live with their grandmother in the small town of Stamps, Arkansas. In Stamps, the young girl experienced the racial discrimination that was the legally enforced way of life in the American South, but she also absorbed the deep religious faith and old-fashioned courtesy of traditional African American life. She credits her grandmother and her extended family with instilling in her the values that informed her later life and career. She enjoyed a close relationship with her brother, who gave her the nickname Maya when they were very young. At age seven, while visiting her mother in Chicago, she was sexually molested by her mother's boyfriend. Too ashamed to tell any of the adults in her life, she confided in her brother. When she later heard the news that an uncle had killed her attacker, she felt that her words had killed the man. She fell silent and did not speak for five years. Maya began to speak again at 13, when she and her brother rejoined their mother in San Francisco. Maya attended Mission High School and won a scholarship to study dance and drama at San Francisco's Labor School, where she was exposed to the progressive ideals that animated her later political activism. She dropped out of school in her teens to become San Francisco's first African American female cable car conductor. She later returned to high school, but became pregnant in her senior year and graduated a few weeks before giving birth to her son, Guy. She left home at 16 and took on the difficult life of a single mother, supporting herself and her son by working as a waitress and cook, but she had not given up on her talents for music, dance, performance and poetry. Maya Angelou Biography Photo In 1952, she married a Greek sailor named Tosh Angelos. When she began her career as a nightclub singer, she took the professional name Maya Angelou, combining her childhood nickname with a form of her husband's name. Although the marriage did not last, her performing career flourished. She toured Europe with a production of the opera Porgy and Bess in 1954 and 1955. She studied modern dance with Martha Graham, danced with Alvin Ailey on television variety shows and recorded her first record album, Calypso Lady (1957). She had composed song lyrics and poems for many years, and by the end of the 1950s was increasingly interested in developing her skills as a writer. She moved to New York, where she joined the Harlem Writers Guild and took her place among the growing number of young black writers and artists associated with the Civil Rights Movement. She acted in the historic Off-Broadway production of Jean Genet's The Blacks and wrote and performed a Cabaret for Freedom with the actor and comedian Godfrey Cambridge. In New York, she fell in love with the South African civil rights activist Vusumzi Make and in 1960, the couple moved, with Angelou's son, to Cairo, Egypt. In Cairo, Angelou served as editor of the English language weekly The Arab Observer. Angelou and Guy later moved to Ghana, where she joined a thriving group of African American expatriates. She served as an instructor and assistant administrator at the University of Ghana's School of Music and Drama, worked as feature editor for The African Review and wrote for The Ghanaian Times and the Ghanaian Broadcasting Company. Maya Angelou Biography Photo During her years abroad, she read and studied voraciously, mastering French, Spanish, Italian, Arabic and the West African language Fanti. She met with the American dissident leader Malcolm X in his visits to Ghana, and corresponded with him as his thinking evolved from the racially polarized thinking of his youth to the more inclusive vision of his maturity. Maya Angelou returned to America in 1964, with the intention of helping Malcolm X build his new Organization of African American Unity. Shortly after her arrival in the United States, Malcolm X was assassinated, and his plans for a new organization died with him. Angelou involved herself in television production and remained active in the Civil Rights Movement, working more closely with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who requested that Angelou serve as Northern Coordinator for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. His assassination, falling on her birthday in 1968, left her devastated. With the guidance of her friend, the novelist James Baldwin, she found solace in writing, and began work on the book that would become I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. The book tells the story of her life from her childhood in Arkansas to the birth of her child. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings was published in 1970 to widespread critical acclaim and enormous popular success. Maya Angelou Biography Photo Seemingly overnight, Angelou became a national figure. In the following years, books of her verse an
Picture: Dragon, stained glass window, Christchurch Cathedral, Oxford. I recently uploaded one of the first song lyrics I ever wrote. Here is the first. You'll note that this one features the 'nasty stinking dragon' which made a sudden appearance at the end of the other song. If Hingefinkle appeals to you as a character, have a look at his Logbook elsewhere on my photostream - and if you like that, let me know, because there are lots of other stories about Hingefinkle and friends - definitely fairy-tales for childish adults! Old Hingefinkle There’s dust on the shelves and on the crystal ball Dust on the antlers hanging in the hall Dust on the pictures nailed to the wall In the home of old Hingefinkle There are tomes by the dozen, scrolls by the score In Hingefinkle’s home, bard of ancient lore And treasures salvaged from the last Goblin War In the home of old Hingefinkle. [Chorus:] Never more, never more Never coming home Never to return Never more to roam No more monsters Recorded in the tome Since that nasty stinking dragon ate Hingefinkle For data on creatures his life he’d gladly risk: Troll and goblin, horrid basilisk, Recorded in the book marked “Monsters Misc.” Foolhardy old Hingefinkle. When news of the dragon came to the town (He’d gobbled the parson in his eucharistic gown) “Of generic descriptions this will be the crown!” Said the foolish old Hingefinkle. [Chorus] The dragon had started on the parson’s son He was crunching his bones in the jolly summer sun When Hingefinkle came at a loping run Stupid old Hingefinkle. “Good grief”, said the dragon, “What have we here? Some old codger! Some moron without fear! I’ll have him barbecued and wash him down with beer! Delicious old Hingefinkle!” [Chorus] Hingefinkle scribbled madly in his book The dragon gave him a with’ring scornful look Then took a deep breath, Hingefinkle for to cook And he frizzled old Hingefinkle. Hingefinkle’s giblets tasted rather good, Said the dragon, “Though I’m sore misunderstood, My fare surpasses any other food!” And he crunched up old Hingefinkle. [Chorus] But the dragon stopped and screamed and bawled and cried Cause Hingefinkle’s bones got stuck in his inside And he keeled over, choked and coughed and died To the last laugh of Hingefinkle. Then the townsfolk let forth many jolly calls They cut up the dragon and ate him in their halls And the mayor was served with flambed dragon’s balls And they all praised old Hingefinkle. [Chorus] But dragon-flesh is poison’d, as they should have known And soon the mayor began to gasp and groan He turned bright green and died upon his throne And they all joined old Hingefinkle. [Chorus]
