    This concise audio biography is a special tribute to acclaimed writer, poet, and Civil Rights activist Maya Angelou. Narrator Cherise Boothe's beautiful, clear voice evokes Angelou's spirit and embodies the power of the spoken word. Boothe's tone and pacing are genuinely engaging, creating natural pauses that encourage listeners to reflect on the significance of the author's imagery. The evocative musical score and sound effects are an integral part of this performance. Echoes of voices and fragments of poems and speeches meld with recognizable sounds from everyday life, enhancing the narration. The hardcover picture book's full-page illustrations, with layers of color and symbolism, make a stunning accompaniment. And the back matter, also narrated by Boothe, provides significant details relevant to this incredible woman's life and accomplishments.
