Poet, artist, actress, activist, prophet – Maya Angelou’s remarkable life touched on many of the major events of the last century. Born in poverty and raised in racially
segregated Stamps, Arkansas, she overcame early trauma to go on to succeed in an array of artistic endeavors. She became a dancer, singer, educator, and poet. Her book, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, became a commercial and critical success. She was active in the civil rights movement and educated young artists and writers throughout her career until she died in May 2014.

Instructor: Linda Drajem, writer and retired English professor, Buffalo State College
