8 | AMAZING PEACE BY MAYA ANGELOU.
Join Doña Croll in the warmth and cosiness of the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse as she reads Amazing Peace: A Christmas Poem by Maya Angelou.
One of the most renowned voices of our time, Angelou originally wrote and performed Amazing Peace for the 2005 White House tree-lighting ceremony, and her deeply moving words still serve as a significant reminder for us all, today.
In our joy, we think we hear a whisper.
At first it is too soft. Then only half heard.
We listen carefully as it gathers strength.
We hear a sweetness.
The word is Peace.
