DELRAY BEACH, Fla., April 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of one of the most inspirational modern figures, Successories has added Maya Angelou to their motivational posters and inspirational art. Artwork includes a new line to the contemporary wall decor family, as well as a new title to the Great Leaders line.
Born in 1928, Maya Angelou became one of the most renowned and influential voices of the 20th century. With over 50 honorary doctorate degrees, Dr. Maya Angelou became a celebrated poet, memoirist, educator, dramatist, producer, actress, historian, filmmaker, and civil rights leader. Angelou was also the recipient of many awards and honors, receiving a Pulitzer Prize, a Tony Award, three Grammys, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Throughout her career, Angelou was the epitome of inspiration to fighters of civil rights everywhere, working alongside peers such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X.
The Maya Angelou Inspirational Art collection features inspirational quotes from Dr. Angelou's various speeches and poems, and is available in three print styles including framed and unframed posters, wood mounted and gallery canvas. Sampled works include Continue and Rainbow in the Cloud. Made in the USA using the highest grade paper and the finest printing techniques, the motivational posters reflect the company's signature quality and craftsmanship, and are backed by a 100% guarantee.
The Maya Angelou Great Leaders title features the poem, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and is available as either a framed desktop print or framed 16"x30" poster. The highlighted poem was originally published in 1969 and is a piece by Angelou that was once banned in schools across the US but is now, however, a staple for many curricula around the world. The poem, considered an autobiography, details Maya's journey from a young girl to becoming a strong young woman and mother at age 16. Nominated for a National Book Award in 1970, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings continues to sell steadily to this day, even earning a spot on Time Magazine's list of 100 best and most influential books written since 1923 in 2011.
