Maya Angelou

I Know Why the Caged Bird Stings

Poet David Mills reflects on the life and times of Maya Angelou

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.
