We are sad to report that after battling health issues, the legendary Dr. Maya Angelou has passed away at 86.
Angelou is well known for the numerous literary works that she has penned over the years including her book I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings and who can forget her poem “Phenomenal Woman?” Angelou also appeared in the film Poetic Justice and was a activist for equal rights among all people. She also served as a mentor to Oprah Winfrey.
Our condolences go out to the family, friends and loved ones of Dr. Angelou. She will be missed.
