This morning we lost an iconic figure who gave so much to the world…Maya Angelou, beloved Poet, Author, Professor, Activist, Actor, and the list goes on. As a Black Woman I have been more than inspired by this amazing woman. I remember reading her classic book, I know Why The Caged Bird Sings in grade school. Her poetry made me feel good about being a Black Woman an allowed me to hold my head up a little higher, especially those powerful words from the famous Phenomenal Woman.
Today’s #WednesdayWords are from our very own Queen, Mother Maya Angelou.
“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without, courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”
“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences and penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
We love , honor & celebrate a true legend!
#MayaAngelou 1928 – 2014
