    I read her book ” I know why the mocking bird sings” something of that nature. My brothers had to read it for a college course. It was moving, her voice alone is beautiful and moving..
    The world have lost a great poet and inspiring woman. RIP

    We’ve lost another great pioneer in Dr. Angelou. She empowered so many with her wisdom & truth.
    May she rest in peace.

    Loved her….I had the privilege to meet her and hear her speak in the 90s…she is inspiring and so graceful. I will miss her wisdom and profound knowledge. She is definitely a part of history and a phenomonal woman indeed. Beaufiful tribute Nancy.

    I met her 3 times in my life, and each time was riveting and soul search inducing. She is the reason why I never judge anyone either …because she went through such gut wrenching things in her life to become the prolific poetic life force that she was. I love that she lived a full life, an honorable life…and ultimately a good life.
