Maya Angelou defines Black History, as it is embraced in our popular culture with an emphasis on the civil rights era and a poetic acknowledgement of late activist, Rosa Parks. In this one hour historical trek, Dr. Maya Angelou renders a poetic portrait of the day-to-day lives of African Americans during the civil rights era, when artists and activists, musicians and ministers joined hands with people from all walks of life to bring about a historic change in our culture.  Program features Congressman John Lewis, Poet Nikky Finney, Mary J. Blige, Dr. Julianne Malveaux and Ambassador Andrew Young.
