Maya Angelou


"Art is not a luxury. The artist is so necessary in our lives. The artist explains to us, or at least asks the questions which must be asked. And when there’s a question asked, there’s an answer somewhere. I don’t believe a question can be asked which doesn’t have an answer somewhere in the universe. That’s what the artist is supposed to do, to liberate us from our ignorance."

  4. Hello,
    My name is Sharon Jefferson. I am a middle school social studies teacher. I was touched by Dr. Angelou’s work when I was in high school. I have seen her in person twice in my life but have never had the pleasure of talking to her her. She has always been a maternal figure for me. It is my ultimate dream to have the opportunity to meet her. I am so jealous of Oprah! Is there an email address where I can contact her?
