Maya Angelou Emails Obama Supporters
Maya Angelou is trending big time on Twitter right now. Most of it is love. But there are too many haters. After all, she took a stand for Obama in a mass email to the president’s supporters. And we all know how heated this election is getting.
Still, I can’t take it. She’s Maya Angelou! She’s the author of the book I Know Why the Cage Bird Sings and the poem Phenomenal Woman. Her work is too prolific to list here. Her influence too great for words.
I’ve copied much of the email below. It arrived with the subject: “Pretty or plain, heavy or thin, gay or straight, poor or rich.” What do you think?
