My first encounter with phenomenal woman Sister Maya Angelou was in her books. Later, I met her as a freshman in college. She was a frequent speaker on campus, and I was blessed to have heard her speak and teach on many occasions through the years.
'Still I Rise' is my all-time favorite poem of hers, followed by 'Phenomenal Woman.'
Today, I remember her life and legacy, a lasting gift to writers, poets and creative souls.
R.I.P. Dr. Maya Angelou.
