Singin’ and Swingin’ and Gettin’ Merry Like Christmas

Singin’ and Swingin’ is the third volume of Maya Angelou’s seven-volume autobiography series. It was published in 1976 and was the first time an African-American woman had expanded her life story into a third volume. The title of the book is tied to the many similes Angelou used, including the words ‘sing and swing’ and ‘get merry like Christmas’
