A more contained (really, the story of her son's teenage years. World events play a supporting role), less event-filled phase of Dr. Angelou's earlier life. She overreaches a few times and yells rather than speaks the significance of a moment. Largely though, this is a remarkable achievement in how much it takes into its arms so effortlessly. It's great fun to read and feels like the events of almost 70 years ago happened yesterday. ( )

> Amie de Martin Luther King, de Malcolm X et d'autres légendes de la lutte pour les droits civiques aux États-Unis, l'écrivain et poète, qui publie en France une biographie, est une figure charismatique dans son pays...
On rit, on pleure, on se bat pour survivre, avec Maya. Quelle vie, se dit-on. On sort de cette lecture revigoré, prêt à en découdre avec la vie, à ne pas baisser les bras. Ce n'est pas le moindre des cadeaux de Tant que je serai noire. --(Julia Ficatier - La Croix du 22 octobre 2008)

L'autobiographie romancée de Maya Angelou, chanteuse, danseuse, journaliste, actrice, écrivaine, et surtout militante, devrait être étudiée dans les écoles. En vous plongeant dans son oeuvre (lire aussi Je sais pourquoi l'oiseau chante en cage et Un billet d’avion pour l'Afrique), vous aurez le sentiment de regarder un film. Contemporaine de Martin Luther King et de Malcom X. activiste dans les mouvements de lutte pour les droits civiques des Noirs américains, Maya Angelou a traversé un siècle riche en événements. Son histoire, faite de désillusions, de combats, d'amour et d'exils, est celle d’une femme qui ne renonce jamais. — C.S.

This is the fourth book in Maya Angelou’s autobiographical series and starts with Billie Holliday as a house guest and goes on to describe her involvement in the Civil Rights Movement and meetings with Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. She organised the Cabaret for Freedom in support of Martin Luther Kings Southern Christian Leadership Conference and acted in Jean Genet’s play The Blacks with Abbey Lincoln, Roscoe Lee Brown, James Earl Jones, Louis Gossett, Godfrey Cambridge, and Cicely Tyson. The final part of the book sees her married to South African Freedom Fighter Vusumzi Make and living in Cairo. An eventful period in her life and she certainly adds plenty of drama to her story.

This period sees her looking at the world from her position within the Black civil rights movement and it is a hostile vision of the white society that controls America. All white’s are ‘Crackers’ never to be trusted and she willingly goes to Africa to escape from the oppression that is part of a black persons lot in 1960’s America. Maya Angelou captures the feelings of those people involved in the struggle as she catapults around in a sphere of now famous people from the movement. Her writing hasn’t lost its edge in this fourth volume and so another four star read. ( )

The Heart of a Woman is the fourth in a series of seven autobiographies penned by Maya Angelou. It begins with her decision to move from California to New York City, because she was invited to participate in the Harlem Writers Guild. Finally we see when and where her writing has started to bud. However, the real focus in this installment is Angelou's time as a civil rights activist -- yet another item to add to her very long resume, even though at this time she was still in her early 30s.

Angelou shares with us her involvement in a long-running show "Cabaret for Freedom" that provided funds for SCLC, the organization founded by Martin Luther King, and in which she had heavy involvement. She replaced Bayard Rustin (at Rustin's request) as the SCLC's Northern Coordinator.

After some time, she met and married (though in name only, apparently) the African anti-apartheid leader, Vusumzi Make and moved to Africa with him.

All fascinating, but at the same time, I was amazed at how she just continues on moving her son, a teenager during this time, all over the place. They lived in several apartments in New York City and Harlem, for instance.

At the very end of this volume, Angelou becomes separated from Make and her son goes off to college in Ghana. As I understand it, the next autobiography covers her time in Ghana. Should continue to be interesting reading. ( )

Cet ouvrage est la traduction d'une autobiographie parue en 1981 : The Heart of a Woman. Magnifique récit que j'ai lu les pieds sur le dash de la voiture l'été dernier alors que l'on roulait à travers les états du Sud. Maya Angelou avait quitté ce monde en mai, c'était la mère de la littérature afro-américaine et même d'Oprah qui la vénérait. Chanteuse, poétesse, écrivaine, militante active, quelle modèle ! ( )
