Heed Salutes Legendary Poet & Author, Dr. Maya Angelou
Today, we lost one of the greatest literary giants of our time. Dr. Maya Angelou, noted for her classic 1969 autobiography “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” and rousing poem “Still I Rise,” was the recipient of many honors and accolades, including the 2011 Presidential Medal of Freedom awarded to her by President Barack Obama. She was indeed a treasure, revered by many not only in literature, but in entertainment and politics. Today, she transitioned at her home in Winston-Salem, NC, but we will forever have the words and stories that made us all fall in love with her.
Rest Well Dr. Maya Angelou — 1928-2014
