Editor's note: We were deeply saddened to learn of Dr. Maya Angelou's passing. The following is from Dr. Angelou's January 2011 appearance on Oprah's Master Class.
After hearing a 19th-century African-American song, Dr. Maya Angelou has never forgotten one important lyric: God put a rainbow in the clouds. Watch as Dr. Angelou shares how she honors those who employed kindness to help her, and find out how, she says, we can all "be a rainbow in someone else's cloud," no matter who they are.
