In 1962 the poet, musician, and performer Maya Angelou claimed another piece of her identity by moving to Ghana, joining a community of "Revolutionist Returnees" inspired by the promise of pan-Africanism. "All God's Children Need Walking Shoes" is her lyrical and acutely perceptive exploration of what it means to be an African American on the mother continent, where color no longer matters but where American-nesskeeps asserting itself in ways both puzzling and heartbreaking. As it builds on the personal narrative of "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings "and "Gather Together in My Name," this book confirms Maya Angelou s stature as one of the most gifted autobiographers of our time."
