Maya Angelou is in Los Angeles this week as she is being honored at the Braveheart Awards but instead of walking in the red carpet and regaling the stage, she was rushed to an L.A. hospital on Saturday, October 3. Up to now, we are still not privy to the details of her hospitalization,, the first to report the bad news, posted that the story is still developing, meaning they don't have any facts and concrete informations, either.

Associated Content - Dr. Maya Angelou was born in 1928, and has become a poet, best-selling author, actress, and above everything else a civil rights activist in her lifetime. She isn't known just as an influential woman, but one of the most heralded voices of the last few generations. Angelou worked with Dr. Martin Luther King and served as the Northern Coordinator for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. In a tragic coincidence, King was assassinated on her birthday. Soon after that, she worked with novelist friend James Baldwin to write what would later become known as I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

It is beyond remarkable how much that Maya Angelou has been able to accomplish already in her lifetime, and the accolades just don't seem to stop. Everything she has been awarded with she has earned, and she is even deserving of more than she has received. Among some of the most notable awards she has received over the years is a Pulitzer Prize nomination for a Georgia, Georgia that she wrote the screenplay and composed the score for back in 1972. She acted in Roots and Poetic Justice, and has narrated more films and documentaries than can be mentioned. Angelou also has a Presidential Medal of the Arts, a Lincoln Medal, and three Grammy Awards to her name.
It is sad to know that such a great woman may be having trouble with her health, I'm praying for the best.
