NYPL Opens Pop-Up Exhibit in Honor of Maya Angelou

Maya AngelouThe New York Public Library (NYPL) is hosting a pop-up exhibit in honor of the late Maya Angelou.

According to the NYPL website, this exhibit has been installed in the lobby of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. It will run from May 30th to June 30th.

Back in 2010, Angelou donated hundreds of boxes filled with her personal papers to the NYPL. Many of the items sourced for this display comes from that donation. Visitors will see letters, handwritten notes, typed drafts of Angelou’s works, a portrait, and more. Will you be making a trip up to Harlem? (via Time Out New York)
