My Interview With Maya Angelou [Video]

In 2009, I had the opportunity to interview Maya Angelou. Like most Americans, I only had vague knowledge of her body of work, but over the course of the interview, she exhibited a dignity and charm that won me over.  I wish I had a Grandmother as wise as her.

Maya passed away this week at the age of 86, and in this interview, she reveals what she wants to be remembered for, and her answer is beautiful.

This interview was conducted with my then co-host, Reagan Warfield, in 2009 around the time of the release of her essay, “Letter To My Daughter”. Although we clearly knew little about her and her life, she was gracious and kind with us, and dispensed some wonderful knowledge. I came to like her because of this time she spent with us.
