Maya Angelou Hosting Month-Long Black History Special

Maya Angelou is celebrating Black History Month in a big way, until the moment when we no longer need a month to highlight the achievement of Black Americans.
“We want to reach a time when there won’t be Black History Month, when black history will be so integrated into American history that we study it along with every other history,” said Angelou. “That’s the hope, and we have to continue to work until that is true, until that becomes a fact.”
Angelou is hosting an hour-long syndicated radio special on the civil rights era that will air throughout this month on about 200 public radio stations across the country. Her special features Grammy award-winning singer Mary J. Blige, Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, former U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young, economist and Bennett College President Julianne Malveaux, and professor Nikky Finney, winner of the 2011 National Book Award for poetry.

This is a great opportunity to learn from one of our most distinguished poets.
