Today we say farewell to Maya Angelou, renowned poet. Maya was 86 years old and died at her home in North Carolina after suffering a long illness according to NPR news. Her writing career began with the famous work, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. This memoir was astonishing considering she refused to speak for much of her childhood. Originally born Marguerite Johnson, Maya was more commonly known by a nickname her brother gave her. Ms. Angelou had an extraordinary life which included many talents and careers including a singer, dancer, author, performer, and political activist. Maya was a beautiful woman who thankfully left a wonderful legacy behind in both her writings and the lives she inspired. Some of her books are listed below for your enjoyment.
