May 3, 2012

CLARION — Dr. Brenda Dede, vice-president of Academic Affairs at Clarion University, said Wednesday evening’s speaker could be described by many adjectives.

She’s an author, a poet, a dancer and a Civil Rights activist — and Wednesday, Dr. Maya Angelou graced the stage of the Marwick-Boyd Theater on Clarion University’s campus, to an auditorium of 3,000 people.

“I’m here, and I’ve come to say something,” Angelou said. “And I won’t leave until I say it.”
