The Context of White Supremacy hosts the fifth study session on legendary poet, author, scholar, mother, sexual abuse survivor and Victim of White Supremacy Dr. Maya Angelou. Dr. Angelou passed away in May of 2014. Her contributions to countering Racism are worthy of reflection. We’ll study her 1969 novel, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. The text provides sobering documentation of Racism and her Arkansas childhood. Last week’s segment offered a profound commentary on her eighth grade graduation. A Racist suspect gave a condescending proclamation to Dr. Angelou’s class; as a young teen she realized the hypocrisy of pretending that a world of opportunities awaited them if they only remained dedicated to their scholarship. Whites dominated Stamps, Arkansas – the world. Black people would not be allowed to do much – irrespective of their talents or desires. We’ll continue to note the sway of White God as we read, and we’ll contemplate why many Whites worship and advertise this work.
