A True Modern Classic

Maya Angelou's extraordinary biographies, including "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," were already part of college English and Humanities courses when former President Bill Clinton tagged her to write "On the Pulse of Morning" for his January 20, 1993 inauguration ceremony. Despite debates regarding whether Angelou is a better prose writer than she is a poet, her inauguration poem is among only a very few, penned by modern poets, that can claim the status of "modern classic." The poet's recital of the work is powerfully majestic and beautifully inspiring. Aberjhani author of "I Made My Boy Out of Poetry" "Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance" and "Visions of a Skylark Dressed in Black"
