Maya Angelou

St. Louis native Dr. Maya Angelou was a celebrated poet, writer, educator, producer, actress, historian, filmmaker, and civil rights activist. The Saint Louis Art Museum will honor Dr. Angelou’s phenomenal legacy in this year’s If It Wasn’t for the Women program.

The program will feature three guest presenters: Alice Windom, St. Louis native and friend of Maya Angelou; Freida L. Wheaton, poet and arts advocate; and Patricia Glinton-Meicholas, author.

If It Wasn’t for the Women will be held Saturday, March 21  at 10:30am in the Saint Louis Art Museum Education Center. Admission is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Reservations are recommended, but not required. Please email RSVPs and program queries to
