"I saw women on the street cars with their little changer belts", told Oprah Winfrey, explaining why she wanted the job. Subsequently, Maya and her son moved to Ghana and joined a vibrant American African expat community. Throughout her life, Dr. Maya Angelou touched many hearts through music, dance, poetry, and teaching. "You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I'll rise". "You're going to take a minimal role in a play going on the road when we're offering you a principal role for a Broadway play?,'" Angelou recalled to NPR.
