Discover the incomparable Maya Angelou with this unforgettable journey through her life and work. From brutally hardscrabble roots in Depression-era South, to coordinator for Martin Luther King’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference, comrade of Malcolm X, and eyewitness to the Watts riots—Angelou’s life has uncannily intersected with some of the most profound moments in American civil rights history. With an incredible cast of interviewees including Bill and Hillary Clinton and Oprah Winfrey, and a treasure trove of archival footage, And Still I Rise is a celebration of a beacon of wisdom and hope.
