A former poet laureate of the United States, Dr. Maya Angelou is one of the great voices of contemporary literature and a remarkable Renaissance woman. She is an educator, historian, best-selling author, actress, playwright and civil-rights activist.
In 2011, AARP paid Angelou its highest honor by presenting her with the Andrus Award, given to an individual who embodies the principles of AARP's founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus.
