Maya Angelou Michelle Obama Oprah Winfrey

The US Postal Service’s attempt to commemorate the late author and civil rights activist Maya Angelou has ended in farce, after a postage stamp bearing her image contained a quotation that was, in fact, attributed to somebody else.

However, though these words are associated with her they were not actually written by Angelou, but instead by Joan Walsh Anglund in her 1967 book of poetry ‘A Cup of Sun’, with the “it” on the stamp changed from a “he”.
