On Sundays during February and in recognition of Black History Month, FBCR has used poems from Maya Angelou as our call to worship. Recognizing Dr. Angelou works, was along with a focus during Children’s Time on influencial African Americans (known and not so known), helped us focus on the many contributions of Black Americans.
Below, we have provided links to the poems read during worship, written by Maya Angelou, who was known as an American poet, memoirist, civil rights activist, dancer, singer, actress, producer, professor, mentor, and more.
Due to copyright regulations, we do not have permission from the author (or family/estate) to print her poem here but we can provide you with a link to where you may find it printed on the internet. On the site called Allpoetry.com where they state that the poems were supplied to them by the owner/author.
