(April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014)
On Wednesday Maya Angelou died aged 86. She was an author and poet of such power and depth that she has rightly become an international treasure. I remember seeing her interview on the Late Show in 1994, she exuded wisdom and warmth and seemed to be a quintessential role model for women. Her life encompassed such talent and experience that it seemed she had lived three lives in one.
She will be missed.
