Today the world lost “a warrior for equality, tolerance and peace.” Maya Angelou was an author, poet and civil rights activist as well as an inspiration to us all. Her words have helped so many people become a better version of themselves. Her contributions will not be forgotten. Here are just a few of those famous quotes.
Dr. Angelou’s Family released this statement today:
Dr. Maya Angelou passed quietly in her home before 8:00 a.m. EST. Her family is extremely grateful that her ascension was not belabored by a loss of acuity or comprehension. She lived a life as a teacher, activist, artist and human being. She was a warrior for equality, tolerance and peace. The family is extremely appreciative of the time we had with her and we know that she is looking down upon us with love.
Rest in peace, Dr. Angelou.
