WNBA Community Remembers Maya Angelou
MAY 28, 2014 -- Maya Angelou -- memoirist, poet, and activist (among many other things) -- died this morning at the age of 86 in her North Carolina home. Perhaps best known for her autobiography I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings which detailed her childhood and young adult experiences growing up in the Jim Crow era South, Dr. Angelou was hailed one of the most prolific writers of the time and is considered an inspiration to many.
WNBA players and members of the NBA family reacted to the news of her death on Twitter.
