Los Angeles – OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will simulcast Dr. Maya Angelou’s private memorial service in celebration of her legacy being held at Wake Forest University, North Carolina this Saturday, June 7 at 10 a.m. ET / 7 a.m. PT on OWN. The memorial service will also be available to view on Oprah.com at www.Oprah.com/MayaAngelou.

 

Oprah Remembers Dr. Maya Angelou:

“I've been blessed to have Maya Angelou as my mentor, mother/sister, and friend since my 20’s.  She was there for me always, guiding me through some of the most important years of my life.  The world knows her as a poet but at the heart of her, she was a teacher.  ‘When you learn, teach.  When you get, give’ is one of my best lessons from her.

 

She won three Grammys, spoke six languages and was the second poet in history to recite a poem at a presidential inauguration.  But what stands out to me most about Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it’s how she lived her life.  She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace.  I loved her and I know she loved me.  I will profoundly miss her.  She will always be the rainbow in my clouds.” 

-Statement from Oprah Winfrey
