Remembering Maya Angelou

From thesource.com

She was a poet, an author, a dancer, a newspaper editor, a college professor and an American icon. Maya Angelou passed away last week and she leaves us as one of the most accomplished writers and titans of literature of her time.

Her book, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, was an autobiographical feature that touched the heart of millions. In addition to her literary works, Maya Angelou also left behind a film legacy. According to her biography website, she appeared in Alex Haley’s “Roots” in 1977 and John Singleton’s “Poetic Justice” in 1993. She directed her first feature film “Down In The Delta” in 1996. Dr. Angelou will certainly be missed.
