Support the First Documentary to be Made About the Life of Dr. Maya Angelou

For the past four years, filmmakers Bob Hercules and Rita Coburn Whack have been working on the first ever documentary on the life of Dr. Maya Angelou. They have started a kickstarter campaign to raise money to cover the cost of finishing this project to be broadcasted on PBS in 2016.

According to the kickstarter campaign, the documentary "will examine Dr. Angelou's remarkable life––from her birth in 1928 to her passing in May of 2014––which spanned the Jim Crow South, the Civil Rights, the Women’s, and Art Movements, along with her impact on celebrity and mainstream popular culture." Filmmakers Bob Hercules and Rita Coburn Whack interviewed many of Angelou's close family, friends, celebrities, academics, and political figures including President Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Common, and Dr. Angelou's son, Guy Johnson, and many more.
