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.

AncientFaces RIP Maya Angelou. This photo of Maya was taken in the 1950's while she worked as a singer in San Francisco and produced her only album Miss Calypso. Enduring a childhood of tough challenges, she survived and thrived with grace and compassion. She will be missed.
