This is a photo of Maya Angelou in the 1950's when she was working as a singer - known as "Miss Calypso" - in San Francisco. Enduring a childhood of tough challenges, she survived and thrived with grace and compassion, becoming a well-respected poet and author. And a role model to millions of women throughout the world. She is missed.

Frances Macias-Souza She had that kind of face, animated, moving, and where her beauty flashed in and out. She was one of a kind; smart, compassionate, an artist with soul. She was motherly in an all encompassing way. God, I miss her already.
Tina Thomas When I think of Maya Angelou, I think of grace and class, the world has lost a great poet, I will miss the poetry she had yet to share, she is now a poet and a lady of the ages, like Alfred Lord Tennyson and Robert Frost, but I liked her most of all, she will live on through her poetry, I am so saddened by the loss of Maya, she rose above adversity with love and strength and she made the world better and more beautiful, rest with the angels sister Maya
