Maya Angelou has passed away at age 86. I love her poems and quotes. She was a poet and writer after a series of occupations including fry cook, prostitute, night-club dancer and performer and journalist. She was an actor, writer, director, and producer. With the publication of "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings", Angelou publicly discussed aspects of her personal life and how she was raped at age 7. She was respected as a spokesperson of black people and women, and her works have been considered a defense of black culture. Angelou is best known for her autobiographies
, but she is also an established poet.
May this phenomenal lady be in a blessed place.
