Woman Crush: Maya Angelou

Woman Crush: Maya Angelou

Posted by Mary Bosibori on

“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.” – Maya Angelou

Much liguistic artistry inspires women’s fashion. Maya Angelou born Marguerite Annie Johnson was born on April 4, 1928. She was an American poet, memoirist and civil rights activist best known for her seven series autobiography which focus on her childhood and early adulthood experiences. She was respected as a spokesperson for black people and women and her work was and still is a defense for the black culture.


Amongst the numerous poems that accelerated her to fame, two of them happen to stand out for us on a monumental level here at Adele Dejak. We could not resist the urge to share them with you as much as we are aware most of you have come across them on many other occasions. And without further ado, these are the poems that make Maya Angelou our very deserving woman crush this week.

Phenomenon Woman

Still I Rise

We hope that they move you as much as they have us and they may act as a reminder for you to be a better human.
