More about this programme
"Maya Angelou, in your life you've been all sorts of things: cook; a conductorette on a tram car; a madam; a prostitute; a dancer; a singer; an actress; a civil rights activist; a writer. What’s given you most satisfaction?" So opens this edition of the re-launched interview format Face to Face. Maya Angelou untangles her past to produce a compelling account of a life that led to her becoming one of America's most celebrated writers.
