The Celebrate! Maya Project of Arkansas is grateful to the visionaries who helped guide us from our first meeting in July 2014, to our incorporation in 2015, and our continued growth in service!  We are also grateful to our many Friends - individuals, organizations and institutions - who continue to support our mission to promote and celebrate the life and legacy of Maya Angelou, and  most importantly, to share her with Arkansas'communities and schools.
