4. Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise

“Still I Rise,” one of the most well-known poems by poet, writer, and activist Maya Angelou, is a piece on the difficulties in overcoming prejudice and injustice. It’s also the title that the directors have chosen for this documentary that celebrates the story of a woman who truly persevered in the face of adversity — including being a victim of sexual assault as a minor and dealing with encounters with the KKK while living in the South — to become a hugely important activist for black people and women in the United States.
