Maya Angelou was an undeniable force. She was a poet, memoirist, and activist whose work found admiration across the globe. She followed the tradition of the Harlem Renaissance authors, many of whom she met at various points throughout her life. She worked alongside the most notable Civil Rights activists, including Martin Luther King Jr. She was close friends with James Baldwin and Oprah Winfrey. She even mentored Tupac Shakur briefly after meeting him on the set of the film Poetic Justice. A pillar of the Black community, Angelou spoke deliberately and proudly of her culture and era. Wouldn’t Take Nothing for My Journey Now is an important volume in her body of work. It contains dozens of personal essays on womanhood, gender, Black culture, spiritual belief, and approaches to life in general. These personal essays showcase Angelou’s sharp, discerning mind and social and spiritual openness. It is a valuable text for Angelou collectors and general readers alike.

This first edition, first printing is in very good condition. In the original half cloth boards, fine. Text block very good, with minor highlighting of passages on a few pages. In the original dust jacket, fine.

A very good first edition by Maya Angelou.
