In Memoriam of Dr. Maya Angelou

ArtEdgeNYC honors Dr. Maya Angelou who was an activist, artist, poet, author, and national treasure. Dr. Angelou believed in giving and in her life she gave us many works which moved and encouraged people across the world. Her contribution to the writing sector and the arts is insurmountable. May we be comforted by her words, which were full of grace and strength.

Below is a video from the 1993 presidential inauguration of President Bill Clinton where she read her poem “On the Pulse of Morning”, only the second poet in history to be invited to speak at a presidential inauguration.
