Google honours her with a doodle.
Google recruited a star studded cast, including Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys, Laverne Cox, America Ferrera, Martina McBride, and Angelou’s son, Guy Johnson to read Angelou’s famous poem “Still I Rise.”
When her doodle is clicked it leads to a page of the stars reading Angelou’s poem while illustrations fill the screen.
Speaking to Google about the poet, Oprah said, “Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it’s how she did it all. She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence, and a fiery, fierce grace and abounding love.”
