On Wednesday May 28, the world lost an icon. Dr. Maya Angelou passed away peacefully in her sleep, and while millions continue to grieve her loss, some members of a spoken word collective are choosing to honor her memory.

The event, hosted by the South Side Community Art Center, will celebrate the life, work and legacy of the queen mother, Dr. Maya Angelou.

All are welcome to this free event set to take place on Sunday June 1 at the Center (3831 S. Michigan) from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Participants will have the opportunity to share their favorite works of Ms. Angelou.
