Who is Maya Angelou ?

Maya Angelou was born to Marguerite Annie Johnson; April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014), an American poet, singer, memoirist and activist for civil rights. She has published seven autobiographies, three essay books, several poetry books and is credited with a 50-year list of plays, films , and television shows. She has received dozens of awards and over 50 degrees of honour. Angelou is best known for her seven autobiographical series that focus on her childhood and early adult experiences. The first, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings (1969), tells of her life up to the age of 17 and gave her worldwide praise and recognition. Following a series of occupations as a young adult, she became a poet and writer, including fry cook, sex worker, nightclub dancer and singer, cast opera member Porgy and Bess, organizer for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and journalist in Egypt and Ghana during Africa’s decolonization. She was an actress, writer, director , and producer of plays, films, and public TV shows. She was appointed first Reynolds American Studies Professor at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina in 1982. She was active in the Civil Rights Movement and worked on the lecture circuit with Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. Beginning in the 1990s, she made about 80 appearances a year, something she continued into her eighties. In 1993, at Bill Clinton’s first inauguration, Angelou recited her poem “On the Pulse of Dawn” (1993) making her the first poet to do an inaugural recitation since Robert Frost at John F. Kennedy ‘s inauguration in 1961. Angelou has publicly discussed aspects of her personal life with the publication of I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. As a spokesperson for black people and women, she was respected and her works were considered a defense of black culture. Her works are widely used in schools and universities around the world, though some U.S. libraries have made attempts to ban her books. The most celebrated works by Angelou have been classified as autobiographical novels, but other critics view them as autobiographies. She made a deliberate attempt to challenge the autobiography’s common structure by criticizing, altering, and extending the genre. Her books concentrate on such subjects as sexism, sexuality, family and travel.
