Schomberg Center Remembers Maya Angelou

From Timeout New York:

If rereading Maya Angelou's poetry has left you wanting more ways to mourn her passing, the New York Public Library is offering Angelou fans a chance to connect with the author through an exhibit of her personal artifacts and manuscripts. . . . 
When Angelou donated the archive, she explained that libraries had given her a sense of safety and possibility as a child. Her hope, she said, was that her collection might allow the NYPL to do the same thing for another child. For the next month, visitors interested in exploring Angelou’s work and life can browse through the exhibit in the lobby of the Schomburg Center in Harlem. Although the display will close June 30, the archive is currently available to researchers, and is expected to be fully catalogued within a year.
Learn more about the exhibit and the collection at the Schomburg Center.
