Remembering Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou's voice may have fallen silent today, but her words live on. Angelou died at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina at the age of 86. She was a poet, civil rights activist, a singer, a dancer and when she was just 16, Angelou became San Francisco's first female streetcar driver. Anderson had the honor of speaking with Maya Angelou several times. We wanted to share the full interview from their conversation marking the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.

Watch part two of the interview:

Their most recent conversation was about six months ago following the death of Nelson Mandela. She spoke about his legacy and even broke into song.
