Happy 86th Birthday to Dr. Maya Angelou! Dr. Angelou avoided celebrating her birthday for years after her friend, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated on her 40th birthday in 1968. Instead, she and her friend Coretta Scott King would “meet or talk or send each other flowers.” She is shown here doing a little reading in her room before performing at New York’s Village Vanguard in the late 1950s.
