“I cook and I read. I have fabulous gardens, so I like to sit out in my gardens. I cook for friends and have cocktails for friends. I watch Law & Order and listen to country music.” Maya Angelou.

“Although nature has proven season in and season out that if the thing that is planted bears at all, it will yield more of itself, there are those who seem certain that if they plant tomato seeds, at harvest time they can reap onions.
Too many times for comfort I have expected to reap good when I know I have sown evil. My lame excuse is that I have not always known that actions can only...

"I respect what the ingredients do with each other–how they interact, what the fire does to those ingredients. I respect mixing them at the proper times and bringing them out of the oven and off the stove at the proper time. I want that food to knock my guests' socks off so that all they can do is say 'Mmmm' for the first two or three minutes." Maya Angelou. This is exactly what would happen....

“I’m a woman! I have enough basic intelligence to know that I am wise to be on my own side. I am an advocate for myself, and an advocate for women. The center worked very hard on trying to focus on all aspects of women’s health and wellness. Once they had satisfied that framework, they decided to name the facility after me, and I’m pleased and flattered and delighted.” Maya Angelou. This is...

"Dignity—the word itself—has come to mean different things to different people, as many words do. It doesn't just mean always being stiff and composed. It means a belief in oneself, that one is worthy of the best. Dignity means that what I have to say is important, and I will say it when it's important for me to say it. Dignity really means that I deserve the best treatment I can receive. And...

Today we celebrate what would have been the 89th Birthday of our Beloved, Maya Angelou.
"Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am...

“I’m grateful to intelligent people...That doesn’t mean educated. That doesn’t mean intellectual. I mean really intelligent. What black old people used to call ‘mother wit’ means intelligence that you had in your mother’s womb. That’s what you rely on. You know what’s right to do.” Maya Angelou. These wise words from our Matriarch are found in the 2013 Vogue interview and article "Maya Angelou...

Nikki Giovanni said, “I was friends with Maya Angelou. We would have lunch together when we were teaching at colleges near each other. Most people don’t know that Maya was a very good cook. We would tease each other by saying things like ‘I’ll teach you how to really make chicken’. It’s an honor to get an award named after such a good friend and a talented woman. I am very happy that the AAMBC...

"I had had a difficulty in St. Louis when I was seven-and-a-half. I had been raped and the person who had raped me was killed. I said he -- I called his name and he was killed. And I thought at the time that it was my voice that caused the man to be dead and so I just refused to put my voice out and put anybody else in danger." Maya Angelou.

"The breezes of the West African night were intimate and shy, licking the hair, sweeping through cotton dresses with unseemly intimacy, then disappearing into the utter blackness. Daylight was equally insistent, but much more bold and thoughtless. It dazzled, muddling the sight. It forced through my closed eyelids, bringing me up and out of a borrowed bed and into brand new streets.

"Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.

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...

"The variety of our skin tones
can confuse, bemuse, delight,
brown and pink and beige and purple,
tan and blue and white.

I've sailed upon the seven seas
and stopped in every land,
I've seen the wonders of the world
not yet one common man.

I know ten thousand women
called Jane and Mary Jane,
but I've not seen any two
who really were the same."
