Maya Angelou

A Shabty for Maya Angelou

Poet Shonda Buchanan finds inspiration in Egypt

The name of our site, The Undefeated, was inspired by a quote from poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou that begins, “You see, we may encounter many defeats, but we must not be defeated.”

We asked several poets and writers to reflect on the Meaning of Maya.
