"Still I Rise" - Remembering Maya Angelou

From the moment it was published in 1978, “Still I Rise” has been one of Maya Angelou’s best-loved and most influential poems. It has inspired figures as diverse as Bill Clinton and Tupac Shakur and has become a staple in the canon of American poetry. Dr. Angelou’s directness and candor affirms the power of individual strength over collective history, as well as to the power of individual lives to shape our shared future. Watch and listen as the great poet, who died at age 86 on 28 May 2014, introduces and recites her paean to resilience and dignity.

The Japanese have a word, Kenzoku, which translated means, family. The definition suggests a bond between humans who’ve made a similar dedication to share the same story. It implies the presence of the deepest connection of friendship.
