Civil rights activist, poet, professor, film and television producer, actor, director singer, dancer, author, composer, Professor Angelou did it all. She was a person of many talents. For me, a child of the fifties and sixties, Maya was an ever evolving work, growing greater and more noble as time went by. I am not going to even try to go into all of he accomplishments, because I would end up writing all day and into the night. For those who are not familiar with her life’s work, or with her amazing journey,wiki has a great page.
Professor Angelou will be sorely missed by everyone who ever knew her, or knew of her
