Maya Angelou on the Magic of Kindness
Inspiring words on finding hope, for yourself and others, in dark times.

After hearing a 19th-century African-American song, Dr. Maya Angelou has never forgotten one important lyric: “When it look like the sun don’t shine anymore, God put a rainbow in the clouds.”

The late writer, poet and civil rights activist says she has had a lot of clouds in her life, but also many rainbows.

Maya Angelou is well known for her 1969 memoir, I know why the caged bird sings which made literary history as the first nonfiction best-seller by an African-American woman. She was no stranger to difficulties in her own life, but her extraordinary courage and wisdom always prevailed. She says she always honoured those that were kind to her.

Here, the late Dr Angelou urges us to be a blessing to somebody else.
