It’s something we normally don’t talk about in society. But brave Maya Angelou isn’t ashamed to say it… “I’m a child of God”. Her words will forever echo in eternity.

“When I try to describe myself to God I say, ‘Lord, remember me? Black? Female? Six-foot tall? The writer?’ And I almost always get God’s attention,” Angelou tells NPR’s Lynn Neary with a laugh.

Though she feels she sometimes needs to remind God she’s still around, the rest of the world needs no prompting. Angelou, whose books of essays and poetry have sold millions of copies, was an inspirational figure long before her acclaimed memoir <em>I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings</em> was published in 1969.
