Happy Birthday, Dr. Maya Angelou!

Last year the world celebrated Maya Angelou with a historic Google Doodle on her 90th Birthday. This year we celebrate 91 years with breaking news. “Phenomenal Woman: An Evening With Maya Angelou” is currently being developed with hopes for Broadway.

Today’s #GoogleDoodle celebrates Dr. Maya Angelou’s 90th birthday! Set to her poem #StillIRise, the video Doodle includes her own voice along with the voices of other individuals whose lives she has inspired.

We celebrate the re-release of I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, with a foreword by “daughter-friend” Oprah Winfrey. We celebrate a book that changed the nation and eventually the world by giving a young black girl a voice, once lost then freed to sing the song of all people.

MESSAGE FROM THE FAMILY

Developing a love of truth, standing for civil rights, enjoying life itself and recording the experience, our matriarch became an inspiration. Maya Angelou’s words, spoken, on the printed page or reflected here, continue to promote self-examination, equality and friendship. Believing that “we are more alike than unalike”, Maya Angelou would be the first to say that as a child of God it was her duty to recognize that everyone else was also a child of God, “Everybody born comes from the Creator trailing wisps of glory.”

Join us as we celebrate a life well lived! Take time to read, listen, view and be inspired. Trail your wisps of glory and once you’ve clicked every page, make sure you return as we continue to expand the experience. Together, let’s celebrate life and joy!

Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise


Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise is the first documentary about Dr. Maya Angelou. The Maya Angelou Documentary will reflect on how the events of history, culture, and the arts shaped Dr. Angelou’s life and how she, in turn, helped shape our own worldview through her autobiographical literature and activism. We hope to shed light on the untold aspects of her life and to educate audiences about her story. – LEARN MORE HERE – – WATCH VIDEO INTERVIEW –
