Maya Angelou var blant annet forfatter, lærer, danser, journalist, manus-forfatter, sanger, skuespiller, poet og aktivist. Hennes liv og arbeid var til stor inspirasjon for mange på 60- og 70-tallet, for generasjoner etter henne og bøkene hennes er fortsatt skolepensum verden over. Hun var en nær venn av både James Baldwin og Malcolm X. Hun snakket 6 språk, vant utallige priser og var mentor for mange kunstnere bl.a. Oprah Winfrey. Maya Angelou levde et utrolig liv som nå blir dramatisert med dans, live musikk og drama på Nordic Black Theatre.
