Example text

They had been on the road over a year. While she was in Rome, Angelou received a letter from her mother with disturbing news. A casino for African Americans had opened in Las Vegas and Vivian planned to become a dealer there. This meant there was no one to take care of ten-year-old Clyde. 11 Angelou wanted to resign immediately. But the show’s business manager explained that if she left on her own, the company would not pay her fare home. In addition, she would be held responsible for paying the transportation costs for her replacement in the show.

During this time, Angelou developed her own original material for the show. She composed music from poems she had written years earlier and wrote new songs to fit calypso rhythms. One night, the Purple Onion was filled with people from the cast of the Broadway show Porgy and Bess, by George and Ira Gershwin. Angelou had taken Clyde to see the show. The story of the male lead, Porgy, and his love interest, Bess, moved Angelou. Porgy and Bess also had the greatest gathering of African-American talent that Angelou had ever seen.

She practiced the tunes again and again until she could sing them perfectly. Angelou spent her mornings exploring Montreal. She knew from her history lessons that Canada was the final destination of many runaway slaves. 6 After performing in Montreal, the group of sixty adult performers and two child actors left Canada and traveled to Venice, Italy. Other than Canada, Angelou had never been out of the United States. She vowed to learn the language of every country the tour visited. The opening night of Porgy and Bess was a success.
