Reviews:
"Footage of her singing and acting will be most eye-opening for those who regard Ms. Angelou as only a writer; recollections by her and other performers of the landmark play 'The Blacks' are among the film’s best moments..." - 10/13/2016 New York Times


"In new interviews, conducted during the last years of her life, her elegance is magnificent, her self-possession as formidable as ever." - 10/13/2016 Los Angeles Times
