Maya Angelou’s unforgettable collection of poetry lends its name to the documentary film about her life, And Still I Rise, as seen on PBS’s American Masters. Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size But when I start to tell them, They think I’m telling lies. I say, It’s in the reach of my arms, The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I’m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me. Thus begins “Phenomenal Woman,” just one of the beloved poems collected here in Maya Angelou’s third book of verse. These poems are powerful, distinctive, and fresh—and, as always, full of the lifting rhythms of love and remembering. And Still I Rise is written from the heart, a celebration of life as only Maya Angelou has discovered it. “It is true poetry she is writing,” M.F.K. Fisher has observed, “not just rhythm, the beat, rhymes. I find it very moving and at times beautiful. It has an innate purity about it, unquenchable dignity. . . . It is astounding, flabbergasting, to recognize it, in all the words I read every day and night . . . it gives me heart, to hear so clearly the caged bird singing and to understand her notes.”

'This book for me is a warning as well as a reminder. May you never experience what I have experienced.' In April 1993, Stephen Lawrence was murdered by a group of young white men on a street in south-east London. From the first police investigation onwards, the case was badly mishandled. In the end, long after the case against the five suspects had been dropped, the government had to give in to mounting pressure and hold a public inquiry, which became the most explosive in British legal history. These facts leave the reader unprepared for Doreen Lawrence's own story of her son's murder. In this raw, honest book, she writes frankly about her childhood, about her struggle for a decent life for herself and her children and her hopes for her bright, motivated son. Her account of the murder and the botched and insensitive investigation by the Metropolitan Police is deeply moving. She recreates the pain, frustration and bafflement she experienced as she realised that there might never be a moment when she could say to herself that justice had been done. A cold case review led to the discovery of DNA evidence in 2009. In November 2011, two of the alleged members of the gang that killed Stephen were finally brought to trial at the Old Bailey. A guilty verdict was pronounced on 3 January 2012. 'To be put alongside Nelson Mandela's Long Walk to Freedom or the works of Maya Angelou.' Andrew Billen, The Times

The companion book to Henry Louis Gates, Jr.’s PBS series, And Still I Rise—a timeline and chronicle of the past fifty years of black history in the U.S. in more than 350 photos. Beginning with the assassination of Malcolm X in February 1965, And Still I Rise: From Black Power to the White House explores the last half-century of the African American experience. More than fifty years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act and the birth of Black Power, the United States has both a black president and black CEOs running Fortune 500 companies—and a large black underclass beset by persistent poverty, inadequate education, and an epidemic of incarceration. Harvard professor and scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr. raises disturbing and vital questions about this dichotomy. How did the African American community end up encompassing such profound contradictions? And what will “the black community” mean tomorrow? Gates takes readers through the major historical events and untold stories of the sixty years that have irrevocably shaped both the African American experience and the nation as a whole, from the explosive social and political changes of the 1960s, into the 1970s and 1980s—eras characterized by both prosperity and neglect—through the turn of the century to today, taking measure of such racial flashpoints as the Tawana Brawley case, OJ Simpson’s murder trial, the murders of Amadou Diallo and Trayvon Martin, and debates around the NYPD’s “stop and frisk” policies. Even as it surveys the political and social evolution of black America, And Still I Rise is also a celebration of the accomplishments of black artists, musicians, writers, comedians, and thinkers who have helped to define American popular culture and to change our world.

Maya Angelou's career encompasses several genres: poetry, prose, plays, and television. This book explores the entire prose and poetry of Maya Angelou. It traces the evolution of her development and her emergence into a personage of renown. To discover the source of her being, Angelou follows a popular black American exercise of searching for her roots and heritage by connecting generally and emotionally with selected African societies and cultures. This book compares her search for heritage with that of Alex Haley's. Haley traced his lineage through specific names and records, while Angelou follows a general avenue to Africa as the homeland. She vividly depicts through personal adventures the broad range of black experiences, both negative and positive. Through a life-long exposure to black folklore and insights, Angelou records a vivid view of life in which this all-encompassing book will allow the readers to compare and assess the extent of Maya Angelou's contributions.

Description This is a collection of prayers and poems created over many years to offer comfort and above all self-belief. This collection gives an amazing perception that everybody has certain pathways. As much as we try to avoid the wrong pathways, we very often tend to head straight for them. This book and the poetry it contains reflects Josephine's experiences from caring for an ill son, to major operations and disability. Many of the poems allude to Josephine's strong religious identity. This is an extremely strong collection of poetry from an extremely strong woman. About the Author After recovering from polio meningitis at aged 6 and being 'home alone' for 4 years. I'd taught myself how to read and write. I returned to school for the final year wherein I won a writing prize at The Royal Albert Hall five times. I went on to work in the legal profession until 2001 when I became David's (son) carer. Having had a turbulent life I compiled two poetry books. I have won certificates from Lookout Magazine and The National Library of Poets - Welwyn Hatfield Times covered these events. Between 1993 until 2003 I became dedicated to securing David's freedom from oppression.

This book was written to bring words of encouragement to the reader and to let them know that they are not alone when it comes to God. He loves us all, and you are never alone when you call upon the Savior. These poems are truly Gifts from God. I asked God what he wanted me to do, and he told me to give these poems to everyone, to the world. From the first poem to the last, these poems tell you about the love and beauty all around us in a world that can be a little chaotic. Grab a moment of peace, beauty, inspiration, and, above all else, love! These are my gifts to you.
