I had the incredible fortune to interview Dr. Angelou in 2007. It was during the height of the Don Imus controversy after his racist remarks about the Rutgers women's basketball team. Dr. Angelou's elegant but stern message, to Imus and rappers alike, was that words can hurt...no matter who says them.

I hope you find this conversation as inspirational as I did, and still do.
