Bishop Richard Holloway talks to Maya Angelou
Heaven was an important reality for the black slaves of the American South. It would be the grand reversal when all wrongs would be righted and tears wiped from every eye. The barefoot would at last have shoes and they would walk all over God's heaven. Maya Angelou , the American writer, talks about the experience of her people and the effect their suffering had on her life. In this, the last of the present series, she shares with Richard Holloway something of her own passion and belief in a special kind of heaven.
