America has lost a great treasure. This week, the world said goodbye to an amazing teacher, poet, performer, activist, director, writer, and person. Dr. Maya Angelou, best known around the library as a great figure in literature, passed away on May 28, 2014. She left behind a legacy of words, performances, and actions. As she stated herself, “nothing can dim the light that shines within.” The memory of Dr. Angelou shine bright in America’s culture, literature and art.
