(Reuters) - American author and poet Maya Angelou, whose groundbreaking memoir "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" earned her international acclaim with its unflinching account of rape and racism in the segregated South, died on Wednesday at age 86.

The prolific African-American writer, known for her lyrical prose and regal speaking voice, died quietly at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Angelou's family said in a statement. No cause of death was given.

R.I.P. dear lady.

Maya Angelou was a remarkable woman, author, and poet.  Despite having a tough early life - she was raped at age 8 by her mother's boyfriend and wouldn't speak for years after she blamed herself when her uncle killed the attacker -  she seemed to me to have lived out her years with a non-political dignity.

Her life is a great American story from a troubled time in our history, much like Zora Neale Hurston "America's favorite black conservative."

Maya Angelou's moment of understanding;  "God loves me."
My moment; I am a great sinner, and Christ is a great savior.


"Amazing love! How can it be, that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?"
