When I Think About Myself / When I Think About Us

While the words of Maya Angelou’s poem, “When I Think About Myself,” reaches into my own life and those of my ancestors with an undeniable accuracy that makes me feel like she knows me, it is the title of this poem that I embrace as a part of her legacy passed to me. It serves as a prompt and a guide from which to share some true stories from my own life and my thoughts about our lives collectively. Humor me as I try to sense-make it all.
