February is Black History Month and today we would like to recognize Maya Angelou. In the 50s, she began to sing at clubs, going by the name Maya Angelou. She eventually moved to New York to focus on her writing and joined the Harlem Writers Guild. At that time, she met other famous writers and joined in the Civil Rights Movement. She helped raise money for Martin Luther King Jr.’s SCLC and sang political songs. Maya spent some time working as a reporter in Egypt and Ghana. She was also a director, activist, screenwriter, and lecturer, but it was her poetry that she is most remembered for. In 1993 she recited one of her poems at the inauguration of President Bill Clinton.
