Reflections on the Caged Bird

Growing up in upstate New York during the 1960s, Christopher reflects on the light cast on those times and that country by Maya Angelou’s memoir I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

The renowned Afro-American poet Maya Angelou wrote a powerful account of her childhood and adolescence in the South and in California: violence and guilt, fear and longing, learning and hope.

Leaning on Maya’s text, Christopher talks about his own ‘White Problem’ and dealing with the fears and aspirations that come with growing up in a racially tense society.
