In her new memoir, Maya Angelou sets out to answer the question of how she got to be Maya Angelou — a question she is asked frequently. As the author of "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," the revolutionary story of how Angelou was raped as a girl and rendered temporarily mute in the aftermath, she might expect her audience to know what made her who she is today.
