About this deal

However the clarity of ‘ LIFE DOESN’T FRIGHTEN ME AT ALL/ Not at all/ Not at all’ with its pale backgrounds, smiling pumpkin face leading to pictures of flowers, is revelatory. She was a poet, historian, author, actress, playwright, civil-rights activist, producer and director. I am speechless to how much i enjoy reading this, the simple language flows perfectly only to aim and strike such a though and grand message.

All information has been reproduced here for educational and informational purposes to benefit site visitors, and is provided at no charge. What’s more, we see the cacophony of ‘ Mean old Mother Goose/ Lions on the loose‘ in Basquiat’s background image, a seeming child-like snarl. His art is exhibited in over a dozen museums around the world, including the MoMA, the Met, and the Whitney. Her focus remains on the arts with a bit of social activism thrown in, starting with her award-winning Life Doesn’t Frighten Me, now celebrating twenty-five years in publication.It seems that when Maya Angelou wrote this classic poem originally, it was not intended for children. Yesterday a parent came over to tell me how impressed she was by the book fair and that you did a fabulous job of selling the books to the children first. I haven't charted out my visits for the summer term, but I'm sure there are several in the south) and thanks so much for being so fantastic! In this brilliant introduction to poetry and contemporary art, brief biographies of Angelou and Basquiat accompany the text and artwork, focusing on the strengths they took from their lives and brought to their work.

She published ten best selling books and numerous magazine articles earning her Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award nominations.Her youth focus has been on books about contemporary art and poetry, critical thinking, and political activism, starting with her award-winning book LIFE DOESN'T FRIGHTEN ME, in which she married the expressive artwork of Jean-Michel Basquiat to a stirring l978 poem of Dr. Together, Angelou's words and Basquiat's paintings create a place where every child, indeed every person, may experience his or her own fearlessness. I have even talked the head into a little revamp of the library so that we can display them properly! The beloved poet Maya Angelou was, among other things, a novelist, playwright, actress, dancer, and civil rights activist.
