The New York Times remembered her as: Maya Angelou, Lyrical Witness of the Jim Crow South. Kerri MacDonald there called it a “Wonderful portrait.”
Angelou’s quote: “Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God” also made its way around the internet.
In memory and click-bait, USA Today put together 13 of Maya Angelou's best quotes. Farhad Manjoo at the New York Times pointed out: “Pour your whole life into writing so that when you die your words might be distilled into an SEO-optimized listicle.”
Sesame Street sent out this tweet “We're saddened by the passing of our friend Maya Angelou. Thank you for all you've done, and for all the hugs” with the most adorable photo.
And at WNYC, Kate Hinds remembers that Maya Angelou Was San Francisco's First Black Streetcar Conductor. Kathryn O'Shea-Evans with Travel + Leisure Magazine called her “A phenomenal woman from the get-go.”
