All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes

Maya Angelou

– Maya Angelou brings alive the accents, colors, and feelings of Africa –

“… In this continuation of the story, Angelou tells of joining a ‘colony’ of black American expatiates in Ghana – only to discover that ‘you can’t go home again’.
Initially, there is the joy of being black in a place where everyone is black, the fun of politics and parties, and the sheer, exotic excitement of a magic land. With her poet’s voice, Angelou brings alive the accents, colors, and feelings of Africa: the moon ‘red as fire over black hills’, the laughter-loving woman whose death proves the reality of the African illusion; a terrifying, inexplicable moment of racial memory on a crumbling bridge. There is a fresh, telling portrait of Malcolm X, a romance with a handsome Muslim, a near tragedy, when Angelou’s son is injured in an accident.
At the end, there is an unsettling ache, ‘the ache for home which lives in all of us, the place where we can go as we are.'”
