I had heard the name before but wasn't sure who she was. I've heard a bit about her, but after googling a bit she seems like a pretty inspirational character. RIP

I didn't know who she was before this, but damn, she sure seems like a woman you can look up to. The world needs more better people like this.
I pride myself on my humility.

Wow. RIP
What an incredible person.


I was just having a discussion about her yesterday. Her autobiography has been life-changing for me and for so many others.

How do so many of y'all not know who she is? That's unexpected and upsetting.

I saw her give a talk once. It was one of the most awe inspiring moments of my life. Felt like anything was possible.

I knew the name sounded familiar when I saw it on another sire but wasn't sure who she was. Looked her up and damn she was pretty inspirational.

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings was one of the best books I've ever read. I'm glad she was around as long as she was.

RIP and Respect. She helped make the US a better place and was monumental in the civil rights movement. I imagine she had some non-US impact as well.

She gave a talk at my college a year or so ago. Truly beautiful and inspiring stuff. RIP, really upset about this.

She spoke (and sang) at a University colloquia I attended some years ago. She will be missed.

I read Warriors Don't Cry my freshman year in high school and it's probably one of the best books I've ever read, sad to know she's gone.

Seems like a more well known figure in America, can't say I know her. RIP though, seems like a great person

Almost embarrassed that I only had any direct knowledge of her because Still I Rise was in one of poetry anthologies in high school - she seems amazing.

I would not feel bad since you guys aren't American, but as I said in my earlier post, she was huge in the civil rights movement here. What Martian Luther King Jr did with speech, Maya Angelou did with poetry and writing.

I am just surprised the number of people here in the states who have no idea who she is. I have NEVER read her works, I just know who she is and her influence and that her impact was monumental. I had to many people today ask me who I was talking about.
