Chautauqua – Maya Angelou Talk

It’s going to be an incredible evening of History, Poetry and Celebration. One night only! Glenis Redmond discusses the inspiring words of Dr. Maya Angelou, author of 20 books, activist, poet, professor and film director whose startling truths inspire Glenis (and all of us) to “rise up and sing.”
