    There are no words that could better describe the magic Dr. Maya Angelou bestowed upon the world better than her own so I won’t try. I just want to remember Dr. Angelou’s spirit and her gentle genius which is on full display in this episode of Iconoclasts with Dave Chappelle. She was, and will forever be, love personified.

  3. "It seems to me that real sexism is a newly delivered message. Black women and black men know that we were stolen and sold together on the African continent. We lay spoon fashion in the filthy hatches of slave ships together. We stood upon the auction block together, were sold together again, took the lash together. There’s no question of superiority. We have survived somehow together."
    — Maya Angelou, in I Dream A World

    "You want to hear what just happened to me? I was in the subway station, and this man came walking by me. He seemed really angry and was talking gibberish and screaming about how he was going to kill anyone who talked to him. So I thought: ‘That guy’s crazy, I’m gonna keep away from him.’ Then two minutes later, another young man walked by and collapsed right in front of me, and started having a seizure. I bent down to help him, and you know what happened? The crazy guy bent down and said: ‘He’s having a seizure! Turn him on his side!’ 

    I thought: ‘Wait a second! Weren’t you just crazy?’”

    Geez.
