Maya Angelou – 297mm × 420mm Giclée Print
Maya Angelou grew in prominence following the release of her first autobiography, I know why the cage bird sings. In this she shared on the sad events which led her to become mute for almost 5 years. Once Maya found her voice again she used it to defend black culture and empower black people and women in general to walk courageously, with strength and determination.
Maya has a great body of work and is responsible for coining the famous sayings “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” and also “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”.
