Maya Angelou: Remembering the Author, Poet, and Activist
Writer, performer, teacher, director and political activist Maya Angelou has died at her home in Winston-Salem, N.C. She was 86 years old.
Dr. Angelou is known for her award-winning book I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, the first of a series of memoirs. And her reading of the poem "On the Pulse of Morning" at President Bill Clinton's inauguration made her a household name.
We spoke with her last year just before Mother's Day, about her autobiographical book, Mom & Me & Mom. Hear the full interview here.
