      Bio

      This Renaissance woman has been hailed as one of the great voices of contemporary literature. Angelou is a poet, historian, best-selling author, actress, playwright, civil-rights activist, producer and director. Her I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings was a National Book Award nominee, and her volume of poetry Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water ‘Fore I Die was a Pulitzer Prize nominee. Angelou read her poem On the Pulse of Morning for Bill Clinton’s 1993 Presidential inauguration at his request. Her adaptation of Sophocles’s Ajax premiered at the Mark Taper Forum.

      Angelou holds a lifetime chair as the Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University. She has received numerous honors including the Yale University’s Chubb Fellowship, and was named a Rockefeller Foundation Scholar. In 2005, Angelou, with 25 other African- American women, was honored as an inspiration to Oprah Winfrey at her Legends Ball.
