Maya Angelou was born on April 4, 1928. She was an American poet, memoir and civil rights activist. She died on May 28, 2014. For more than 50 years, she has published seven autobiographies, three essays, several collections of poems, and a list of dramas, films, and TV shows.
She has won dozens of awards and more than 50 honorary titles. Angelou is best known for her seven autobiographical series that focus on her childhood and early adult experience. The first: I know why the cage bird sings (1969) told about her life at 17 and has gained international recognition.
After doing many jobs in adulthood, she became a poet and writer. In 1982 she was appointed the first Reynolds professor of American studies at Winwick Salem Wake Forest University in North Carolina. She was active in the civil rights movement and works with Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.
With the publication of I know why birds sing in a cage, Angelou publicly discussed various aspects of her personal life. She is considered the spokeswoman for blacks and women, and her work is considered the defense of black culture. Her work is prevalent in schools and universities around the world, although attempts have been made to remove her books from some American libraries.
