Queens Borough President Melinda Katz mourns the death of author and poet Maya Angelou

QUEENS, NY (TIP): Mourning the death of legendary Maya Angelou, author and poet, May 28, at 86, Queens Borough President Melinda Katz said, “Maya Angelou was a brilliant memoirist and poet whose work allowed readers from around the world to better understand the unique struggles that came with being an African American woman who grew up in the Jim Crow South.

She was one of the most important literary and cultural figures our nation has produced and her immense legacy will live on through her prolific body of work, which will be read, studied and appreciated for generations to come. I am truly saddened by her loss and express my condolences to her family and friends and to the millions of readers who admired her so much.”
