You'd think that there would have already been a documentary about the amazing life and career of Maya Angelou. But surprisingly there hasn’t been one.

That is until now...

Chicago based filmmaker Bob Hercules - who previously directed documentaries about the controversial Catholic priest and community activist Father Michael Pfleger (Radical Disciple), the Bill T Jones documentary, A Good Man, and Perseverance: The Story of Dr. Billy Taylor - through his production company Media Process Group, is now well into making the first feature length film documentary about Dr. Angelou, to be called Maya Angelou: The People’s Poet.

In addition, the film has just received two major grants - from National Endowment for the Arts and the Independent Television Service - towards both production and post-production of the project.

No word on when the film will be ready for release, but, most likely sometime next year at the earliest.
