REFLECTIONS OF A BLESSED SOUL: A Tribute To Our Beloved Dr. Maya Angelou offers an intimate portrait of one of the greatest artists/poets/activists/teachers and humanitarians of our times. In the comfort of her home, Dr. Angelou shares insights and stories of her rich and colorful life, which spanned nearly a century and included many of the most dynamic people in the world. With a razor sharp memory of events that occurred many decades ago, Dr. Angelou reflects on her unforgettable experiences with such notables as jazz musician, Max Roach, Langston Hughes, James Baldwin, Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King, Reverend Eric Butterworth, Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, and Amiri Baraka.

In her inimitable style, filled with ardor, laughter, sincerity, wisdom and soul, the great Poetess shares her deep insight on the most controversial and pressing issues, such as Racism, Mother and Daughter Bonds, Anger and Bitterness, Forgiveness, Ignorance, American Society, Black and Jewish Relations in the Post Civil Rights Era. The country's first Black President, Courage, and G-d.
