Versatile and multifaceted are the words that do not entirely justify Late Maya Angelou. A poet, author, singer, dancer and an actor, Angelou is more than all that. Maya Angelou is nothing short of a sensation for all her accomplishments in every single field of talent that she had taken up and more so, for the sparkling and imposing persona that she is. Angelou flaunts a huge fan base, majorly for all the inspiring biographies that she has authored and all the television shows, movies and plays that she appeared in.
Maya’s childhood was anything but smooth. She grew up amidst some highly tragic incidents. Her parents split when she and her brother were still very young. When Maya was seven, one of her mother’s boyfriend raped her and her uncles, in revenge killed the man. This incident shattered little Maya to such an extent that she became mute for five years.
