Honoring Maya Angelou

Angelou Poet and political activist Maya Angelou died today (May 28th).  You can read obituaries and commemorations here, here, and here.  You might also enjoy this collection of some of her best quotes (warning: video will play automatically).  I also think this NPR profile from 2008 will be useful in understanding her impact on society.

You may also want to read some of her works for yourself:
