OWN Honors Dr. Maya Angelou

This Sunday evening on the Oprah Winfrey Network is all about the legendary Dr. Maya Angelou.

OWN will pay homage by airing programs including Super Soul Sunday, Oprah’s Master Class, The Oprah Winfrey Show and the premiere of Oprah Winfrey’s Legends Ball, which all feature the author and activist.

A friend and mentee of Dr. Angelou for more than three decades, Winfrey reflected on her legacy in a statement:

“What stands out to me most about Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it’s how she lived her life.  She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace.  I loved her and I know she loved me.  I will profoundly miss her.  She will always be the rainbow in my cloud.”

The special is scheduled for Sunday, June 1 from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET. Check out the full lineup below:
