Dr. Maya Angelou's memorial service to be simulcast on OWN

There will be a simulcast of Dr. Maya Angelou's private memorial service on the OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on June 7 at 10 a.m. ET/ 7 a.m. PT. Viewers can also catch the memorial service on Oprah.com at www.Oprah.com/MayaAngelou.
"I've been blessed to have Maya Angelou as my mentor, mother/sister, and friend since my 20’s. She was there for me always, guiding me through some of the most important years of my life," Oprah said of the late Dr. Maya Angelou. "The world knows her as a poet but at the heart of her, she was a teacher. ‘When you learn, teach. When you get, give’ is one of my best lessons from her."
Angelou won three Grammy's, spoke six languages and was the second poet in history to read a poem at a presidential inauguration.
"She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace. I loved her and I know she loved me. I will profoundly miss her. She will always be the rainbow in my clouds," Oprah said.
