    Maya Angelou passed away this morning
    [​IMG]

    She was a streetcar conductor (the first black person to have this position, really!), dancer, cook, sex worker, singer, composer, Tony Award nominated actress, journalist, college administrator, professor, market researcher, television producer, and film director... Oh yeah and she was a world renown poet and one of the biggest civil rights activist against segregation, apartheid, sexism and LGBT issues since the 1960s. So yeah, she was a big thing... Thank you for telling us why the caged bird sang, Maya!


    Marguerite Ann Johnson A.k.A Maya Angelou

    She was coming to Omaha in June. We'd been planning a thing for work to send associated to her event.
