 Dr. Maya Angelou has died, according to a report on MyFox8.com. Angelou’s death was confirmed by Winston-Salem, North Carolina Mayor Allen Joines, the station reported. CBS News also confirmed Angelou’s passing.

Angelou, 86,  had been reportedly battling health problems. She recently canceled a scheduled appearance of a special event to be held in her honor.

Angelou was set to be honored with the “Beacon of Life Award” at the 2014 MLB Beacon Award Luncheon on May 30 in Houston.

Angelou, one of the most renowned and influential voices of our time, is a celebrated poet, novelist, educator, producer, actress, filmmaker and civil rights activist.

She has received over 50 honorary degrees and was Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University.

Angelou is famous for saying, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

There are no further details at this time.



RIP
