Way to go! Yay!

The late poet and civil rights activist, Maya Angelou, becomes first African American woman to appear on a US quarter dollar coin.

"The mint's program will issue 20 quarters over the next four years, honouring women and their achievements in shaping the nation's history."

What is a Maya Angelou famous quote?
“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 is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” “What you're supposed to do when you don't like a thing is change it.

I remember a Maya Angelou interview when the topic was
signing books and talking with readers.
At one such event, a young African-American woman came forward,
and Angelou -- I forget what term she used -- knew instantly from the clothing
that this was a very young sex worker.

"Lady," the woman said to Maya Angelou,
"I want to tell you something.
Your book gave me hope."

The book was I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.
