"She [Dr. Angelou] was deeply aware of the cultural and institutional forces that worked to keep her voice, and voices like hers, out of the marketplace of ideas...she defied those forces and, as poet Elizabeth Alexander has pointed out, she helped clear a path for the boom in black women's writing."-Gregory Pardlo
