Maya Angelou left behind a legacy that cannot be contained in a single tribute. Her own memoirs spanned six volumes and didn't cover even half of her life. She was a poet, a writer, an actress, a dancer, a mother, a speaker, an educator, an activist — an irreplaceable voice in American and international culture and history. We all have our own connection to Angelou and her work. We all remember the first time we read the wild, pungent words of her poetry or heard that resonant and languorous voice that sounded like no one but her.
