The 29th Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration

Presented by the Office of Multicultural Student Development

Maya Angelou is hailed as one of the great voices of contemporary literature and as a remarkable Renaissance woman. Being a poet, educator and director, Ms. Angelou continues to travel the world, making appearances on college campuses and spreading her legendary wisdom. A mesmerizing vision of grace, swaying and stirring when she moves, Ms. Angelou captivates her audiences lyrically with vigor, fire and perception. She has the unique ability to shatter the opaque prisms of race and class between reader and subject throughout her books of poetry and her autobiographies. Ms. Angelou has authored 11 best-selling books including I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings and her current best seller, Wouldn’t Take Nothing For My Journey Now.
