TEXAS INFORMER - Cover Story

 Maya Angelou Phenomenal Woman

Dr. Maya Angelou is one of the most renowned and influential voices of our time. Hailed as a global renaissance woman, Dr. Angelou is a celebrated poet, memoirist, novelist, educator, dramatist, producer, actress, historian, filmmaker, and civil rights activist.

The family confirmed the news in a statement on Wednesday: “Dr.. Maya Angelou passed quietly in her home before 8:00 a.m.. EST. Her family is extremely grateful that her ascension was not belabored by a loss of acuity or comprehension. She lived a life as a teacher, activist, artist and human being. She was a warrior for equality, tolerance and peace. The family is extremely appreciative of the time we had with her and we know that she is looking down upon us with love.”  A professor, singer and dancer, among other things, Angelou’s work spans several different professions. She spent her early years studying dance and drama in California. After dropping out of high school at age 14, she became San Francisco’s first African-American female cable car conductor.
