Angelou tenders tutorials in perspective and wisdom in short essays and poems to her “thousands of daughters.” But you need not be female to be changed by the lessons the American poet, memoirist, civil rights activist and performer learned and under what conditions she learned them. I found solace in grieving my sister from Angelou’s letters (published in 2008, six years before Angelou’s death), especially her chapters “Mrs. Coretta Scott King” and “Condolences.” Now I return most frequently to her introduction, which contains some of her most famous quotes:
A major theme in “Mrs. America” is the divide between white and black feminists in the 1970s and the role of race in the battle over the ERA. Before she began her research, Waller knew little about Florynce Kennedy, a lawyer and activist played in the series by Niecy Nash. “After reading this book, I think it’s a gross failure” that Kennedy isn’t more widely recognized, she says. “This is a great biography that really places her at the beginning of intersectional feminism, as one of the first women to speak about the intersection of sexism and racism and the connections between Black Power and the feminist movement.”
