Woman of the Day: Maya Angelou (1928-2014)
Maya Angelou was an actor, dancer, and journalist. Angelou is recognized as one of the most important figures in modern American literature. Due to childhood sexual abuse and trauma, Angelou became unable to speak for several years. She found her voice through her writing. As an adult, she became involved in the civil rights movement and befriended both Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. In 1969, Angelou published her most famous work, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.” The fictionalized autobiography described her experience as a young Black woman in America. The book was hailed for its revolutionary approach, beginning Angelou’s career as a bestselling author of numerous books, poems, and essays.
