Personal friend of Malcolm and Martin. Unlikely influence on Tupac. If you have a chance to catch her on Iconoclasts with Dave Chappelle on The Sundance Channel, don’t miss it. Both of them are remarkable individuals. With people like Maya Angelou in our world, it makes you wonder how we ever became obsessed with the celebrities we obsess over. The other night, Spencer and Heidi were on Larry King. The world would be a slightly better place had he opted to have Maya on. Just a thought.
