In new, Maya Angelou shares the story of her relaionship with her mother
Repeat - By popular demand we repeat our June interview with legendary author Maya Angelou. In her new book, Mom & Me & Mom, the writer shares the deepest personal story of her life: her relationship with her mother. Angelou's mother, Vivian Baxter, was an indomitable spirit whose petite size belied her larger-than-life presence—a presence absent during much of Angelou’s early life. When her marriage began to crumble, Vivian famously sent three-year-old Maya and her older brother away from their California home to live with their grandmother in Stamps, Arkansas.
