It’s Maya Angelou’s Burfday Today!
Dr. Maya Angelou’s is one of the most found voices of our time. She is a celebrate poet, poet, memoirist, novelist, educator, dramatist, producer, actress, historian, filmmaker, and civil rights activist. She has published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry.
It is hard to give a brief synopsis of woman with so many great accomplishments. I remember reading, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, the summer before I started 9th grade. After reading that book, I went to the library and checked so many of Angelou’s books. One of my favorite quotes from Dr. Angelou is,
“The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them”
No truer words have been spoken. These are word to live by! Maya Angelo is phenomenal woman phenomenally!
Happy Burfday Maya Angelou!
