In her 86 years, iconic American poetess Maya Angelou lived through the gamut of being a black woman in America -- from times of oppression, poverty and discrimination to being hailed as America’s foremost poet. Among her millions of admirers worldwide were Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey.

Venerable theatre star Jalabala Vaidya, an exquisite performer of poetry, brings alive some of Maya Angelou’s best known poems, while Sunit Tandon recounts vignettes of her life. Singing and acting star Nisa Shetty sings songs evocative of Maya’s poetry – including Summertime, Natural Woman, Caged Bird, Phenomenal Woman, etc.
