Maya Angelou…

Maya Angelou’s appearance on The Richard Pryor Special? in 1977. The sketch begins with an adaptation of Pryor’s “Nigger with a Seizure” routine from his 1974 album That Nigger’s Crazy. The special adds a scene with Angelou as the Pryor character’s wife and the routine is no longer simply funny but now poignantly tragic.

Thanks for everything, Dr. Angelou.
