Who is Maya Angelou?

by October 3, 2017

Maya Angelou is a hero who leaves a legacy that will continue to inspire future generations. Today, Caterina Fake discusses Maya Angelou’s accomplishments and inspiring work:

“Before she died in 2014, Dr. Maya Angelou was one of the most admired people in America.
