I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

I’m quite taken by Maya Angelou’s poetic writings.  I often end up highlighting a number passages to re-read later.  The story is about a young black girl, growing up in the racist south. I’m fascinated by the walk in another’s shoes that is provided in Angelou’s stories.  It’s heart breaking and eye opening.  In this time of unrest, we need to be reminded to open our eyes to what we don’t understand.  To walk a few steps in another’s shoes.
