Maya Angelou on Mandela: "He had enough courage to say… I am a person who dares to care for other human beings"

Maya Angelou is a poet, author and a civil rights pioneer. She wrote and recited a tribute to Nelson Mandela on behalf of the American people. It was posted online by the State Department. She has also known Mandela for decades and spoke to Anderson about his enduring impact.

    If something beautiful has come out of the death of Mandela, it is to hear and see the love and appreciation that was held, and is still being held, for him. God bless Dr. Angelou and her words.
