Reverend Cecil Williams speaking at a memorial for Maya Angelou at Glide Memorial Church. He said, "Isn't it something that were drawn together again by Maya Angelou. We're drawn together because we will for centuries to come honor and participate and engage in her legacy and also in the fact that this spirit of Maya is with us. History will record that on this day, we began a new way and a new understanding of what it means to be brothers and sisters. Here we are, Maya. Here we are."
