    In Memoriam

    Tribute to Maya Angelou

    She was not only a poetess but a humanist whose thoughts transcended the very valor and nobility of her life experiences. She was an umbilical mother but her navel was genetically bound to generations of men and women, particularly those who were historically, racially and socially homeless and voiceless.

    This was Maya Angelou who gave humanity the best of herself and saw the ineffable beauty and strength in creation with a conscience that was clear and a consciousness that was deeper than mortal understanding.

    Her legacy is indeed immortal and beyond the written and spoken scripts which she bequeathed to us from her soul and with a generosity of spirit.

    The bird now sings songs of freedom in winged flight up, above and beyond mother earth.
