Kofi and his magic by MayaAngelou with beautiful illustrations by Margaret Courtney-Clarke, is a lovely tale about the wondrous life of a young Ashanti boy who lives in the West African village of Bonwire in Ghana….
According to the New World Encyclopedia, DNA tests taken in 2008 indicated that Angelou was descended from the Mende people of Sierra Leone in West Africa. #MayaAngelou was fluent in 6 languages including Fante.
Her book All God’s Children Need Travelling Shoes (1986): Explores Angelou’s experiences living in #Ghana with her son..
