Honor Black History Month by Getting to Know Maya Angelou

Humanities scholar Becky Stone portrays acclaimed author and poet in February program

Post Date:01/29/2019

Storyteller Becky Stone will bring Maya Angelou to life in this special library program.

Dr. Maya Angelou was a fantastically talented writer, a respected civil rights activist, and a woman of enormous experience and wisdom. In addition to the autobiographies, poems, and novels that brought her widespread critical acclaim as a writer, Angelou composed popular music and movie scores, wrote television scripts, produced plays, worked with major civil rights leaders (including Dr. King and Malcom X), and received more than 50 honorary degrees. On Thursday, February 28, from 7 to 8:30 at the Longmont Public Library, professional storyteller and national humanities scholar Becky Stone will bring Dr. Angelou to life in a special Chautauqua program honoring Black History Month. Stone has previously portrayed Harriet Tubman and Rosa Parks as part of this “Black History Live” series sponsored by Colorado Humanities. The program is intended for those aged 18 and older only and is free, but registration is required. Register online.  No email address?  Call (303) 651-8472 to register by phone.
