Black History Month Salute…Maya Angelou

Happy Black History month! I just watched Maya Angelou, And Still I Rise on Netflix this week and I was inspired. It talked about her struggles of being abandoned and raped as a child, to becoming one of the most influential Black women of all time. Angelou was a writer, activist, author, and speaker well known for her work with the civil rights movement and literary works. As a child, I was raised on Angelou’s poetry and was inspired by her book I know Why the Caged Bird Sings. If you get the chance this month, dive into some Maya Angelou and share some of your thoughts. She passed in 2014 but her spirit lives on. Today we salute Maya Angelou! Happy Black History Month!
