  1. ‘’A goldenpen has fallen’’ Themonth of May has grasped thesoul of our Angel, andlet her dark glasses shining our pen to emphasis her task towardgenerations to others. Ithas been said that ‘’her poems are like her shadow. —– Painfullyreeling, honestly enraged and hurting with the pain of being a woman’’. Endlessly,Maya becomes the wind of inspiration to the pen-and-ink around the trees. Maymusic still be the refuge of her soul! Somany, many words and idioms have been taught, learned indeed gathering minds,to praising and rising her tasks. May the intonation of Maya’s voice be alwaysheard through the wind!

  2. I n I never had the pleasure of learning about Maya Angelou in my predominately white school in the 1970’s; it wasn’t until my early 30’s that I began my appreciation for her; and still took me years to understand her, but I am glad that I had the opportunity to live during her time.

  3. Thank you, Tom Joyner, for the prompt text message about her passing! I had just written a birthday tribute on my blog recently. As an educator and young woman, her body of work has shaped me in more ways that I can express.
