One Grammy category that's dear to Dr. Angelou's heart is the spoken word, a category in which she holds three Grammy Awards. Dr. Angelou talks with actress Ruby Dee, who was awarded the 2007 Spoken Word Grammy along with her late husband, Ossie Davis, for With Ossie and Ruby: In This Life Together. Ruby Dee shared the award in a tie with former President Jimmy Carter. Plus, comedians Bob Newhart and Bill Maher, who were also nominees in the spoken word category, talk about their nominations as well as their recent works.
