State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli Statement on the Death of Maya Angelou

“Today, America mourns the loss of one of its greatest writers and poets, Maya Angelou, a woman who gave a voice to millions and whose works of poetry and prose transcended race, gender and eras. As an artist, actress, college professor and lecturer, she touched and influenced many from all walks of life, both here and abroad. While she is no longer with us, her personal memoirs and collections of verse will remain relevant and vital far into the future.”
