Mom & Me & Mom

by Maya Angelou


Mom & Me & Mom focuses primarily on Maya Angelou's dynamic relationship with her mother, Vivian Baxter. Angelou covers everything from her abandonment by her mother at the age of three to holding her mother's hand on her deathbed.

Angelou wrote the book to examine love's innate healing power and help 'a person climb impossible heights and rise from immeasurable depths.'

Angelou was an American poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist. This book is Angelou's seventh and final autobiography in a series that began with the critically acclaimed I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.
