The first feature documentary about the incomporable Maya Angelou will screen at the San Leandro History Museum, 320 W. Estudillo Avenue, on Saturday, February 1 at 11:15am and again at 2:00pm.
A singer, dancer, activist, poet, and writer, Maya Angelou inspired generations with lyrical modern African American thought that pushed boundaries. She gave people the freedom to think about their history in a way they never had before. This unprecedented film weaves her words with rare and intimate archival photographs and videos. From her upbringing in the Depression-era South to her work with Malcolm X in Ghana and her inaugural poem for President Bill Clinton, the film is an incredible journey through the life of a true American icon. (2016, Documentary, 1:54)
