Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum Wiki

I Am Maya Angelou is the first segment of the 19th episode in Season 1 of Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum.


Brad is caught in the middle of a sibling spat between Xavier and Yadina that ends with hurt feelings and a refusal to speak to each other ever again. There's only thing Brad can do... To the Secret Museum! Our heroes are sent back in time to meet someone who certainly has a way with words: Maya Angelou. They meet Maya as a young girl, working in her grandmother's store by day and reading every book in the library by night. She loves words and demonstrates the power they have - a power that can be used for good, or for bad. With Maya's help, Xavier and Yadina find it in their hearts to forgive each other and vow that from now on they will always use their words for good.



- Words matter and are powerful. Be careful what you say to each other, even if you are siblings or friends.

- Poems do not always have to rhyme


This episode aired along with its sister episode "I Am Frederick Douglass" on August 21, 2020 at 9:30 AM EST.


  • This is the first time Xavier and Yadina argue. The second will be "I Am Confucius."
