Maya Angelou speaks in Chester County, Pennsylvania
During February’s Black History Month in 1984, the celebrated African-American poet Maya Angelou gave a free talk, open to the public, at West Chester University, Chester County, Pennsylvania. This broadside announces the occasion. It is designed simply, and reproduces a portrait of the author, taken from an original photograph. Two years later, in 1986, Angelou would publish the fifth of her seven autobiographical works, All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes.
