We are touched by many people in our lives. Some of these people are those closest to us, who encourage us and love us each and every day, but some inspire us through their words and the incredible work they do. The brilliant Maya Angelou was one of the individuals that provided encouragement through the words found in her countless essays, poems and in the way she challenged readers to reflect on their own lives. She was not afraid to critique the world around her, and also unafraid to celebrate and appreciate its beauty, which is why her incredible mind and spirit will never be forgotten. 

Maya Angelou's courage to share her experiences through works like I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings and her lyrical prose remain staples in libraries and home bookshelves everywhere. Her legacy reflects her bravery and continuous momentum for good, and we feel so fortunate to have been touched by Dr. Maya Angelou.
