30+ Pervasive and Profound Maya Angelou Quotes

Maya Angelou was an American author and poet. She was born on April 4, 1928. She was a multi talented lady. She was a poet, civil rights activist, actress, dancer, film producer, television producer, playwright, film director, author, professor. She had a tragic childhood as her parents split when she was three years of age. At the age of eight she was sexually abused by her mother’s boyfriend. The culprit was murdered after a few days of his act and this had a great shock on Angelou’s mind. She was a sensitive child. She was small and she blamed herself for speaking up against him. She thought that he was killed because of her voice; he was killed because she named him. In this trauma she became mute for almost five years. It is said that it was during this period of silence when Angelou developed her extraordinary memory. She developed love for books and literature during this period and developed the ability to listen and closely observe the world around her. She wrote ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings’ which is the story of her up to the age of seventeen and was internationally acclaimed for this. She is the author of seven biographies, five essay book and several books of poetry, plays and movies.
