Her body weak, her voice rich and strong, Maya Angelou has accepted a lifetime achievement award from the Norman Mailer Center.
Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Junot Diaz and the late author-journalist Michael Hastings also received prizes named for Mailer, who died in 2007.
Hastings' widow, Elise, teared up as she accepted a journalism award on behalf of her husband, who died in a car accident last summer.
