As the curtain rose on Poet Laurete Maya Angelou at Cheyney University's Marian Anderson Center on Thursday night, the audience welcomed her with a standing ovation.  From babes in arms to senior citizens, she returned the praise with a warm song and huge smile.  Inspired by the Book of Genesis those lyrics wove themselves into her words throughout the evening, "You have the power to be a rainbow in someone's cloud."
