Radio One founder Cathy Hughes makes personal statement on the passing of legendary author and poet, Maya Angelou:

“Another one of our Queens has gone home to the creator, but the essence of her life’s work, “Inspiration”, will live with us forever.   She was able to take her poetic genius and her sense of self-worth, and inspire millions and millions of women, and black women in particular, to feel good about who we are and the essence of our existence.  That is truly a gift without measure, which will continue to resonate with many generations to come.  We must now honor her legacy by continuing to practice the many lessons of wisdom that she blessed us with.  Dr. Maya Angelou said, many times that:  “Words mean more than what is set down on paper.  It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.”
