Legendary poet and beloved activist Maya Angelou has died at age 86.

Angelou is an inspirational writer whose thoughts, expressions and words in poetry transcended being simple words on paper, but active elements that inspired many people and helped shape different philosophies of love, peace and understanding.

“I am the hope and the dream of the slave,” a line from one of Angelou’s works, is a quote that got me through many rough elements during my education. Rest in peace, Maya Angelou.
