Response to criticism of NYT columnist Charles Blow’s remembrance of Maya Angelou


Mark NW.     Seattle, Washington

             You fault Charles Blow because he didn’t say anything about Maya’s “discovery of a supporting Christianity”.  So what?  Charles Blow’s remembrance of May Angelou and what she meant to him was personal and powerful.  He didn’t have an intention to proselytize – nor did Maya. I didn’t know about her Christianity from listening to and reading her. Whatever her spiritual beliefs, she never pushed them. Blow wrote a beautiful testimony of what Maya meant to him. It was complete and whole.

I suggest you write your own remembrance, and leave Blow to his.
