On September 15, Swann Galleries' African-American fine art department will offer her collection at the sale "The Art Collection of Maya Angelou."

Of the over 500 artworks the author owned when she died in May of 2014, 43 pieces will be available in the Swann sale, which will also run on eBay's live auction platform.
