President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were in Harlem, New York on Thursday to honor the legendary Dr. Maya Angelou days before the release of a new documentary on the late poet’s life and legacy.

The Clintons spoke onstage at The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, which was recently designated a national historic museum, at an event celebrating release of the documentary, “American Masters ― Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise.” The film, which debuts on PBS on Tuesday, delivers a remarkable inside look at who Angelou was as well as her impact and influence prior to and long after her May 2014 passing.

The Clinton Library posted this photo to mark the occasion.

Bill and Hillary Clinton were out on the town last night. They took in a performance of the Broadway hit In Transit, billed as a love letter to New York City, at the Circle in the Square.  Perhaps they were celebrating Hillary’s new book deal and upcoming speaking engagements.

Of course she got another standing ovation because B’way loves Hillary!

If there was any doubt that Broadway audiences love seeing the Clintons among them, that was put to rest this weekend.  Just a week after attending the closing performance of “The Color Purple” where Hillary received a standing ovation, the Clintons caught the closing matinee of “The Humans” where the audience repeated the greeting.
