In the first of a special two-part event, Oprah Winfrey sits down with her beloved mentor and internationally acclaimed author, Dr. Maya Angelou. Discussing her latest book Mom & Me & Mom, Dr. Angelou delves into one of the deepest personal stories of her life: her relationship with her mother, Vivian Baxter.

A global Renaissance woman, Dr. Angelou has traveled the world, speaks seven languages, and is one of the world’s greatest poets.  She has been a dancer, singer, artist, professor, director, and activist. Her most notable work, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, was recently named by TIME Magazine to be one of the ‘100 Best Non-Fiction Books of All Time.’ Now, with more than 30 bestselling titles and countless honors and awards, Dr. Angelou is hailed as one of the most renowned and influential voices of our time.

In this candid conversation, the woman Oprah she calls her ‘mother-sister-friend’ opens up about forgiveness, family, and the rich relationship they’ve shared for more than thirty-five years. Dr. Angelou exposes intimate stories from her childhood, including how her nurturing, yet fiery, mother challenged her to find strength in the face of adversity. Plus, find out how a few loving words from her mother changed 22-year-old Maya’s life forever.
