    She leaves a great hole behind and left the world a better place for sharing her experiences and words.

    I didn't know much about her, so I did a basic Wikipedia search. It turns out she was a former prostitute.

    That's all you got out of the Wiki entry? Wow, how sad.

    Not sure it's in the entry, but Angelou was, among her many occupations, San Francisco's first black female streetcar conductor.

    From Wiki:

    She became a poet and writer after a series of occupations as a young adult, including fry cook, prostitute, nightclub dancer and performer, cast member of the opera Porgy and Bess, coordinator for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and journalist in Egypt and Ghana during the days of decolonization. She was an actor, writer, director, and producer of plays, movies, and public television programs. From 1982, she taught at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where she held the first lifetime Reynolds Professorship of American Studies. She also served as a board of trustees member for historically black Bennett College for Women in Greensboro, NC until her death. Maya Angelou - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And you're just a racist who spends all day trying to be relevant on an internet forum. No one is perfect.

    Anyone who can't just say RIP for a dead poet has some serious problems.

    What did the lady ever do to hurt you?
