Maya Angelou

Today is Maya Angelou's birthday. She is a famous poet, author, actress, director and general renaissance woman. One of her famous books you might know is I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

Today we are going to look at her poem On the Pulse of Morning. Ms. Angelou read this poem at the inauguration of President Bill Clinton in 1993. You can find a video of her reading it on youtube if you are off campus. After we read the poem please write your thoughts about it in your reader's journal.
