Phenomenal Woman

Yesterday I saw on Facebook a post about the death of Maya Angelou.  I was surprised at the news to say the least.  Even knowing she was an elderly lady, 86 years old, it still surprised me.  I’ve heard about Ms Angelou for many years and even though I ‘m not much into poetry I was happy to know there are other black women who write and are inspiration for alot of other young black women.

After reading an article about her life in the NYTimes, it amazed me the things that she had seen and done. Never knew she sung calypso or was a dancer.  Or that she’d been married at least 3 times and lived in Cairo and Ghana.  All these experiences made her the phenomenal woman she was.

Rest In Peace Maya Angelou.
