Maya Angelou

Writer Maya Angelou is best known for her heartrending 1969 memoir “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” which describes a childhood that was unsteady and often traumatic, including a five-year period where she became mute after an assault. But she blossomed in young adulthood, discovering a love for literature and writing.
