    Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

    2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

    3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

    4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

    5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

    6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    — – —–Maya Angelou in Africa: The Egypt and Ghana years.
    In the 1950s, Maya Angelou moved to New York where she later met and began a romantic relationship with South African anti-apartheid activistVusumzi L. Make. The two soon moved to Cairo, Egypt, in 1961 along with Angelou’s son Guy Johnson. Angelou and Make lived together inCairo for a short time where Angelou served as the editor of the English language weekly publication The Arab Observer.

    After separating from Make in 1962, Angelou and her son moved to Accra, Ghana, where Angelou joined many other African-American
    expatriates living in the country. There, whilst her son attended college and later recovered from an automobile accident, she served as an instructor and assistant administrator at the University of Ghana’s School of Music and Drama, worked as feature editor for The African Review and wrote for The Ghanaian Times and the Ghanaian Broadcasting Company.

    • crazycanuck

      What she saying Alma, I don’t have sound

      • Alma98

        She said Dr, Angelou got her through some tough times. Especially on the campaign trail, when people were dissecting her womanhood.

        • crazycanuck

      I don’t think Mrs Obama cares — She had that defiant look in her eyes;

      She was going to honor Dr. Angelou with her truth — the truth Dr. Angelou inspired in her and so many–

      She’d never really have that perfect moment again to tell just how Dr. Angelou saw her – a little black girl from the South Side of Chicago – through the racially and culturally tough and tricky times – from her Ivy League days, on the campaign trail and as America’s first black First Lady–

      It was important– And I’m so glad she spoke her heart –

    This is beautiful. I’m going to need to watch this in its entirety later on today.

  • http://batman-news.com Mi

    Oh my God, Mrs Obama honored Dr. Angelou so beautifully–

    That was an authentically powerful and heartfelt tribute worthy of a woman who indeed made black girls and black women begin to embrace their uniqueness; begin to feel worthy in a world that always told them that they fell short – and only because of the way they looked out of their mother’s womb–

      • http://batman-news.com Mi

        The concept of a black woman as phenomenal — Imagine that!

        But Dr. Angelou said it, lyrically drilled it into the psyche, and for the first time really, a generation of black girls and women really began to see themselves as just that — phenomenal!
