- from Maya Angelou
Most artists are talented in one area. For instance, Pablo Picasso was a great painter. He didn’t write novels or act in plays. No, he was a painter. That was his art.
Similarly, you don’t hear about Ludwig van Beethoven working as a dancer or writing poetry. No, he was a composer. Music was his art. Maya Angelou was different. Though she is best known for her work as a writer and poet, she had success as an actor, a singer, a filmmaker, and so much more. All manner of artistic expression poured from Maya Angelou. As did her work as a civil rights activist.
