She inspired the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Quincy Jones and generations of writers, educators, businesses, government leaders, churches, poets, students and ordinary people from around the world. Her words helped to invent a better future, says Jon Barnes - Virginia Tech Alumni. Her poetry has taught us to share, care, and fight personal greed to develop better working, social, educational, and religious environments helping others get along . Maya Angelou's personal struggles and accomplishments teaches us how to have a spoken, yet poetic voice in our own communities, making changes as needed and inspiring ourselves. Maya Angelou didn't need people to tell her to rise up and go to work. Her pencil drove her thoughts to create master pieces sprinkled with love, says Alex Bailey - Berkeley School of Music Alumni. Quincy Jones and Oprah Winfrey loved working with Maya Angelou on many projects, since she was such a shining light of hope to all who knew her. We are delighted that Dr. Maya Angelou, the author & poet, is being honored in this manner, says Quincy Jones.
