This morning we learned that Dr. Maya Angelou passed away peacefully this morning in her home.  The renowned poet and author left a legacy of truth telling about cultural ills faced by African Americans and more.  She told her own story and gave legitimacy to so many others who struggled silently.

May 28th is a sad day for the loss but a great day to remember her contribution to society.  We love you Maya.  Well done.
