Dr. Maya Angelou is a remarkable Renaissance woman who is hailed as one of the great voices of contemporary literature. As a poet, educator, historian, best-selling author, actress, playwright, civil-rights activist, producer and director, she traveled the world, spreading her legendary wisdom. Within the rhythm of her poetry and elegance of her prose lies Angelou’s unique power to help readers of every orientation span the lines of race. Angelou captivates audiences through the vigor and sheer beauty of her words and lyrics.


I have so much respect for Dr. Maya Angelou. It’s sad when a powerful voice and spirit like Maya Angelou isn’t acknowledged until death, but in this moment many of us take the time to honor her memory by posting pictures, her poems and books. I will admit that reading her words empower me and gives me the courage to face anything. Her words make me proud to be me, a woman, and to respect myself and love myself. Thank you Dr. Maya Angelou for your inspiration.

Rest in eternal happiness Maya đź’‹
