    FILE - In this May 20, 2010 file photo, poet Maya Angelou smiles as she greets guests at a garden party at her home in Winston-Salem, N.C. In the midst of talking black history with Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys, Angelou breaks out singing a hymn a cappella. She wants to show Keys, a New Yorker, what "lining out," call-and-response singing that is popular in Southern black churches, sounds like. That teaching moment is one of many during Angelou's third annual Black History Month program, "Telling Our Stories," airing on more than 175 public radio stations nationwide throughout the month.
