Google doodle celebrates 90th birth anniversary of an American award-winning poet, author, playwright, historian, songwriter, singer, dancer, stage and screen producer, director, and civil rights activist, Dr Maya Angelou. From 2009 to 2012, she was an award-winning syndicated columnist for a number of daily newspapers from NY to Texas.
When her doodle is clicked it leads to a page of the stars reading Angelou's poem while illustrations fill the screen. Her most popular work, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, influenced an entire genre and helped Angelou become one of the most well-respected people in the world.
The handsome cartoon depicts images accompanying the powerful words of Angelou's famous poem ' And Still I Rise', recited by a series of well-spoken voices. Her life was a true testament to the power of the Black woman.
"Maya Angelou, I love her so much". She'd never worked as a journalist before, but her job at the Observer tossed her into the deep end of reporting while working in an office full of men who'd never worked with a woman before. "She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence, and a fiery, fierce grace and abounding love", Winfrey told Google. She recognized that unlike positive virtues, neither greed nor hatred has to be taught; they come naturally and have to be untaught in order to free their possessor of their burdensome weight and baggage. She said it was the one of the best decisions she ever made. She saw all our differences in language, orientation and perspective as an indication of the richness of our imagination and creativity, and as elements of our nature that we should celebrate. "You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I'll rise".
