Dr. Maya Angelou died recently on Wednesday May 28th 2014. She was an extremely inspiring and infuentual African American Woman. She will be missed for her great books and quotes which both
she has many of.
Quotes that I like:
"Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning".
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel".
"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude".

Dr. Maya was winning achievments from 1970 all the way to 2013. Here are three of her awards:
1970- Chubb Fellowship
1973- Tony Award nomination
2012- Black Cultural Society Award
I think that Dr. Maya Angelou is a very inspirational person and never gives up for what she believes in.
R.I.P Dr. Maya Angelou, I hope you are happy wherever you are! :):)
