Maya Angelou titled her 1969 autobiography "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings." 🕊 But did you know that the phrase was inspired by a much older poem called Sympathy? It was written by Paul Laurence Dunbar, African American poet, novelist, short story writer, in 1899. #BlackPoetryDay Paul Laurence Dunbar, Black Poetry, Why The Caged Bird Sings, Caged Bird Sings, African American Poets, Black Indigenous, The Caged Bird, Poetry Projects, Caged Bird
