First Lady, Oprah To Honor Maya Angelou At Memorial Service

First lady Michelle Obama and media magnate Oprah Winfrey will be among the speakers honoring poet, author and civil rights champion Maya Angelou at a private memorial service in North Carolina on Saturday. Former President Bill Clinton is also scheduled to attend the tribute at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, where Angelou taught for three decades. Angelou wrote the poem "On the Pulse of Morning" and read it at Clinton's first presidential inauguration in 1993. That pioneering work helped give black women writers a literary voice and became a reading list staple in American classrooms.
