Rare Maya Angelou Interview With Dave Chappelle. Wow.


This is a gem of a video where the late poet and Dave Chappelle converse as a part of a 2006 series on the Sundance Channel called “Iconoclasts.” Stating the obvious: Maya Angelou is a calming presence, strong in her conviction and cerebral in her thinking. Here, in this clip, the two talk about what most people had been so curious to know: Why did the Comedy Central star really walk away from $50 million?
