Heads of states and other dignitaries are expected to attend the private service, but no names have been confirmed.

Prior to her death, Dr. Angelou had been a faculty member at Wake Forest since 1982.

“Dr. Angelou was a national treasure whose life and teachings inspired millions around the world, including countless students, faculty, and staff at Wake Forest, where she served as Reynolds Professor of American Studies since 1982. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Angelou’s family and friends during this difficult time.”

“Maya Angelou has been a towering figure — at Wake Forest and in American culture. She had a profound influence in civil rights and racial reconciliation. We will miss profoundly her lyrical voice and always keen insights,” Wake Forest University President Nathan O. Hatch said on Wednesday.

Angelou’s family will release a formal statement on Monday.

NewsOne will provide more details as they become available.
