Dr. Maya Angelou remembered

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Dr. Maya Angelou is one of the most well-known figures in American literature, but her legacy extends all over the world.

You don't have to look far to find those who will remember her. Dr. Cheryl Hopson, an assistant professor of African-American literature at Georgia Regents University reflects on one of her heroes.

"I will miss her profoundly," Hopson said. "My mother loves reading, and this morning she called before I could call her and we both were a little teary-eyed because Maya has been with us all of my life and my life predates clearly. She was with my mother longer than she was with me and the fact that my mother feels her loss says a tremendous amount for me."
