In Case You Missed It! First Lady, Michelle Obama gave a wonderful, inspiring speech at the Memorial Service held for Dr. Maya Angelou this weekend. Former President Bill Clinton, Cicely Tyson and many others attended the ceremony to pay their respects to The Phenomenal Woman. "The first time I read “Phenomenal Woman”, I was struck by how she celebrated black women’s beauty like no one had ever dared to before. (Applause.) Our curves, our stride, our strength, our grace. Her words were clever and sassy; they were powerful and sexual and boastful. And in that one singular poem, Maya Angelou spoke to the essence of black women, but she also graced us with an anthem for all women –- a call for all of us to embrace our God-given beauty. And, oh, how desperately black girls needed that message. As a young woman, I needed that message. As a child, my first doll was Malibu Barbie. (Laughter.) That was the standard for perfection. That was what the world told me to aspire to. But then I discovered Maya An ...
In case you missed Michelle Obama's amazing speech at Dr. Maya Angelou's memorial at Wake Forest University this morning, here is the transcript. To the family—Guy, to all of you—to the friends, President Clinton, Oprah, my mother Cicely Tyson, Ambassador Young—let me just share something with you: My mother, Marian Robinson, never cares about anything I do. But when Dr. Maya Angelou passed, she said, “You’re going, aren’t you?” I said, “Well, Mom, I’m not really sure, I have to check with my schedule’ she said “You are going. Right?” I said “Well, I’m gonna get back to you, I have to check with the people, figure it out.” I came back and said that I was scheduled to go and she said “That’s good. Now I’m happy.” It is such a profound honor—truly a proud honor—to be here today on behalf of myself and my husband as we celebrate one of the greatest spirits our world has ever known, our dear friend Dr. Maya Angelou. In the Book of Psalms it reads, “I praise you for ...

Maya Angelou - 'Still I Rise' and quotes by the internationally celebrated poet and author Angelou obituaryWriter, poet and civil rights campaigner lauded for her memoir I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings The writer Maya Angelou, who has died aged 86, won acclaim forher first autobiographical memoir, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969), a scathing and sardonic indictment of the racial discrimination she experienced as a child in Arkansas and California. "If growing up is painful for the southern black girl," she wrote, "being aware of her displacement is the rust on the razor that threatens the throat. It is an unnecessary insult." The book is also a celebration of the strength and integrity of black women such as Angelou's grandmother, who enforced the respect of white adults and endured the impudence of white children. Unlike Richard Wright's autobiographical Black Boy (1945), which has a similar setting and theme, it gives a sympathetic and compassionate account of a beleaguered black community whil ...
i have now listened to Maya Angelou, Cicely Tyson, Alfre Woodard, and Kerry Washington read the Sojourner Truth "Ain't I A Woman"
I'm I the only one watching Oprah Winfrey's Legends Ball right now on Own, I am a sucker for inspirational TV. Maya Angelou, Angela Basset, Cicely Tyson, Diana Ross, Halle Barry, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Michelle Obama, Tyra, Naomi Campbell etc. all in one room. I swear only Oprah can pull something like this, sheesh I wish I was there.
Watching "Oprah's Legends Ball" is giving me chills. To see so many successful and beautiful African American women is so inspiring! It's so unfortunate that young black girls in this generation may never know who Ruby Dee Davis, Maya Angelou, or Cicely Tyson is (just to name a few).
white dude posted a pic of Cicely Tyson sayin "RWG to the greatest poet, Maya Angelou" lmmfao smh
Sitting here watching Oprah's "Legends Ball" that she hosted in 2006. Her invitation list included such beautiful and positive African American women as Dr. Maya Angelou, Coretta Scott King, Roberta Flake, Shirley Caesar, Cicely Tyson, Phylicia Rashad, Debbie Allen, Diahann Carroll, Patti Labelle, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, Dionne Warwick, Diana Ross, Michelle Obama, Della Reese, and Angela Bassett, just to name a few. These women are the shoulders upon which we stand as black women. Their lives, their work, their contributions, and their legend is what we should strive to emulate and pattern ourselves after. I was deeply moved and inspired to be better and do better, and encourage you to do the same in becoming a "living legend."

As much as I may criticize Tyler Perry as a director/ writer I will give him praise & props for including new and older actors/ personalities in his movies. Cicely Tyson, Maya Angelou, Kathy Bates, Journey Smillette & the new, new people of a certain age that may have never broken into the buisness had he not cast them and keep giving them work on stage, TV & Movies. My opinion of him as a director is nothing compared to the amount of real work he has created for the community.

I am not sure who watched the DNC last night but Michele Obama is one of the most influential women along with Coretta Scott King; Betty Shabazz; Maya Angelou; Angela Davis; Cicely Tyson; Rosa Parks; etc. Her speech showed compassion and respect and most of all love for her family. She is one of many women (black; white; etc) that truly stand by her man and support him with pure love and respect. I am not a crier but I was totally moved by her speech. It is the women that I mentioned above that make me proud to be woman. All Women ROCK!
