The five-hour tribute will air Sunday, June 1, from 5-10 p.m. ET, and will include programs on which Angelou was featured, such as “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” as well as the premiere airing of “Oprah Winfrey’s Legends Ball.”
Winfrey, who knew Angelou since Winfrey was in her 20s, called Angelou a “mentor, mother/sister."
“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 clouds," Winfrey said.
