FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpgMaya Angelou believes that a writer who tells the truth can be read by anyone. James Baldwin, for example, can be enjoyed by black, white, Muslim or Jewish readers -- indeed by anyone who values reading the truth. Great literature takes us out of the limiting cage of identity politics -- into the realm of truth.
