May 30, 2014 0 Comments
Poet, activist, memoirist, actress, and professor — Maya Angelou, one of the great American voices of the past century, has died at age 86.Angelou became a household name in 1993, when she delivered an inaugural poem, "On the Pulse of Morning," at Bill Clinton's swearing-in, the first writer to serve in such capacity since Robert Frost at John F. Kennedy's inauguration in 1961.
  • Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
  • Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
  • One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.
  • I think we all have empathy. We may not have enough courage to display it.
  • If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.
  •  I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.
  • All great achievements require time.
  • I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side, be an advocate for myself and others like me.
  • I'm grateful to intelligent people. That doesn't mean educated. That doesn't mean intellectual. I mean really intelligent. What black old people used to call 'mother wit' means intelligence that you had in your mother's womb. That's what you rely on. You know what's right to do.
  • My life has been one great big joke, a dance that's walked a song that's spoke, I laugh so hard I almost choke when I think about myself.

Ahmad Salkida

 Nigerian journalist, Ahmad Salkida, who previously worked for Daily Trust and Premium Times and reported extensively on Boko Haram, fled Nigeria to Dubai 2 years ago after being accused of being a Boko Haram sympathizer.

He said he fled after 'his life and that of his family became endangered' after security agencies began to mistake his in-depth reporting on the terrorist group as evidence of his closeness to them. He went underground for several weeks before finally fleeing Nigeria. Salkida was perhaps the only Nigerian journalist/civilian to have access to Boko Haram, and he said at the time that he'd turned down Boko Haram's many requests for him to publish exclusive interviews and materials for them.
