As you may well know, author and poet Maya Angelou died yesterday at the age of 86. PBS commemorated her passing with a news story on PBS NEWSHOUR yesterday evening, and tonight's TAVIS SMILEY is completely devoted to the life of Maya Angelou. In addition, Friday's CHARLIE ROSE - THE WEEK will also include segments looking back on her life and work.
