Last month Dr. Maya Angelou was honored at the National Portrait Gallery with her own portrait. During the festivities, Roland Martin, host of “NewsOne Now,” had a change to talk with Dr. Angelou about being honored by her piers and the value of speaking the truth.
“Facts often obscure the truth,” Dr. Angelou said. “You don’t have to tell everything you know,” she continued. “But try to make everything you say the truth as you understand it.”
