According to Fox 8 in Winston Salem, North Carolina, Oprah Winfrey was in Winston Salem on June 2 to help arrange the memorial service for her late friend and mentor, Dr. Maya Angelou. Dr. Angelou’s son, Guy, decided to have a closed service for family and friends on June 7 at 10 a.m. at Wake Forest University’s Wait Chapel, due to limited seating capacity. Oprah and a handful of others were inside Wait Chapel for at least a half hour on June 2, until 1 p.m., discussing seating arrangements, where the family will sit and how the chapel will be decorated. Oprah tweeted on June 1 that she was at Angelou’s home, “sitting at her kitchen table.” Angelou’s family has requested that in lieu of flowers or public memorials on campus, donations be made to the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center………….
