Google Celebrates Dr. Maya Angelou with Doodle

The work is part of Angelou's collection "And Still I Rise", which was published 40 years ago this summer.

Angelou died at her home in California on May 28, 2014, aged 86.

Before she became the influential writer the world knows, Angelou was a singer and dancer. "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.

This resulted in extreme trauma, and believing she had caused the man's death by mentioning her name, she refused to speak for five years. Dr. Maya Angelou used words to craft the most wonderful, gripping poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. Her vast impact on popular culture was also felt through a host of award nominations, public accolades, and more than 50 honorary degrees.




Dr. Angelou was always very politically active and participated in the Civil Rights movement, working with Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X in the '50s and '60s.

One of her most famous poem, On the Pulse of the Morning, was made for an recited at President Bill Clinton's inaugural ceremony in January 1993. The album consisted of a variety of calypso songs and was her only album. The Welcome Table to explore recipes that held personal meaning for her, and with Great Food, All Day Long, she shared an abiding love of preparing meals for others while focusing on healthy courses. The book chronicles Angelou's childhood.

Her poem, Phenomenal Woman remains one of her enduring works and on her birth anniversary, we bring to you some snippets of poems by other female poets. "All people's hands.
