R.I.P. National best selling author, genius, icon for the civil rights and feminist movements, Dr. Maya Angelou, will go down in history as one of the great voices of literature. Dr. Angelou’s past as a sex worker was a guarded secret, since she talked about it herself in one of her great works, “Gather Together In My Name:

Now this Book follows Dr. Angelou’s journey through the course of two years, during which she admittedly pimps for a lesbian couple (an idea she proposed to them), works as a prostitute, almost loses her son to a kidnapping caretaker and only avoids drug addiction due to a chance encounter with a friendly junkie who warns her of heroine’s side effects.
