Of course it has now been revealed that the quote attributed to Maya wasn’t actually hers:

“Her stamp features the phrase, “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song,” which the USPS attributed to Angelou—though the direct quote may actually be from a different author.”

Normally that would be embarrassing, butt hey - it’s Washington! What do you expect, real quotes?

In fact I understand there is going to be a whole series of Maya stamps; all of which will contain things she didn’t say:

maya email

maya bird

maya loving

maya obama

The last time Lady M saw Maya Angelou before her death was in 2012 when she presented her with a BET lifetime literary achievement award:


That’s a gorgeous gown! It deserves a full 360 degree view:
