Maya Angelou was an innovator of the greatest magnitude. She shed light on the essence of life because she lived a quintessential mystical life, from brothels to the library of congress. The world needed to hear her song, as it is the path of compassion, empathy, and self-liberation. She gave the literary world the gift of autobiographical fiction, perhaps the cornerstone of 21st century literature.
“The chicken has flown the coup
Songs of freedom transcribed in motion
No longer an imitation of freedom
The brewing, stewing, frothing broth is set
Chicken soup for the mind and soul.”
In loving memory of Maya Angelou: April 4, 1928- May 28, 2014
