Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou was born in St Louis on 4 April, 1928 and died on 28 May, 2014. She was an American poet, memoirist and civil rights activist who worked with both Martin Luther King and Malcolm X during the civil rights movement.

Over the course of her life, she managed to write seven autobiographies including 1969’s seminal I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Her autobiographies challenged the common structure as she critiqued and expanded on issues including race, identity and family. She was the first black female director in Hollywood and also acted on Broadway.
