U.S. author and poet Maya Angelou has died at the age of 86.

She has been hailed for her autobiographies--including "I know why the caged bird sings,"--as one of the first African American women who was able to publicly discuss her personal life.

She was also famous for her inspirational poetry. She was scheduled to speak June 9 at the Orpheum in Omaha.
