R.I.P Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou passed away today. Not many people who drop out of high school get awarded with over 30 honorary degrees and were able to become a professor at Wake Forest University. Then again not everyone is as talented or unique as Maya Angelou. Her life was not easy, she had to overcome a lot in her life but she did achieve success.

And Still I Rise


She was awarded The National Medal of the Arts, The Lincoln Medal, and The Presidential Medal of Freedom. She won three Grammy Awards for her spoken word albums. She has won other awards and been nominated for several honors.

His Day is Done

She is best known for I Know Why the Cage Bird Sings and her poem On the Pulse of Morning. However, I am not going to persuade you from exploring her other works as well.

Just Do Right

Maya Angelou thanks for your art, the poetry, the literature, your plays. Thank you for teaching and influencing others. Through your works you were a teacher long before you were a professor. May you rest in peace.

On the Pulse of Morning
