Editorial Reviews

Review

"I know that not since the days of my childhood, when people in books were more real than the people one saw every day, have I found myself SO moved."

-- James Baldwin

"Full of laughter and tears, love and hate, failures and triumphs, and above all, understanding."

-- John O. Killens

"Gather Together in My Name

"Gather Together in My Name is part of a select body of literature that includes The Autobiography of Malcolm X, Claude Brown's Manchild in the Promised land, and Ernest J. Gaines's The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. Maya Angelou regards the world and herself with intelligence and wit; she records the events of her life with style and grace."

-- William McPherson, The Washington Post Book World

"Here the 'caged bird' soars, and sings in a voice as rich and funny, passionate and mellow as any writer I know."

-- Shana Alexander

From the Publisher

This engaging book chronicles the changes in Maya Angelou's life as she enters the hub of activity that is New York. There, at the Harlem Writers Guild, she rededicates herself to writing, and finds love at an unexpected moment. Reflecting on her many roles--from northern coordinator of Martin Luther King's history-making quest to mother of a rebellious teenage son--Angelou eloquently speaks to an awareness of the heart within us all. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Empowering, and a great addition to the series
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 25, 2020
This is the 4th book in her autobiography series and honestly, I fall in love with her more with each time. Maya Angelou is truly a phenomenal person and I aspire to have her drive and passion in life. In this book she is based in Harlem and joins a writer’s guild. Her compassion and commitment lead her to respond to the fiery times by becoming the northern coordinator of Martin Luther King’s civil rights movement. Her civil rights work leads her to meet Malcolm X, James Baldwin and many others. She promises her hand in marriage to one man, only to be swept off her feet by an African freedom fighter (Vus) who takes her to Egypt. Vus is rather set in his ways (controlling, manipulative and misogynistic) and I never trusted him or liked him. He obviously didn’t understand the concept that if you marry a strong independent woman, she isn’t going to change for you or do what you want. There are two scenes at the end of the book which are jaw dropping and have you either cheering for Maya or wanting to give her a hug.

On Goodreads it said that Maya speaks with an intimate awareness of the heart within us all and I don’t think I could say it any better. The writing is truly phenomenal and humorous at parts and I can’t wait to pick up the next one. I’m such a advocate for this whole series and would recommend everyone to read them all! I’ve definitely added Maya Angelou to my list of inspirational women and I can’t wait to learn more about her life in the next instalment.
