Maya Angelou on Shakespeare

"Shakespeare must be a Black Girl."
--Maya Angelou

Illustration from William Shakespeare Things
I read that quote years ago and have never forgotten it. Over on the William Shakespeare Things blog, there's a clarification of what Angelou meant.  It seems appropriate to revisit the quote even as the memorial service for America's poet laureate is underway.
