Statement from Lt. Gov. Brown on Passing of Maya Angelou
Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown issued the following statement in reaction to the death of renowned poet and author Maya Angelou:
“Today, we grieve the loss of Dr. Maya Angelou, whose light brought hope to each person who heard her powerful message of perseverance.
As a celebrated writer, Dr. Angelou’s words inspired those from every walk of life. But how she lived her life outside of that success was proof that we are more than a sum of our accomplishments or job titles. Over the course of her life, through many challenges, her message remained the same: that each of us is responsible for making the world a better, more just place to call home. We hope and pray that her message will not soon be forgotten.”
