Maya Angelou has become a global symbol of peace, humility and freedom. As a singer, dancer, activist, poet and writer, she inspired generations with lyrical modern African American thought that pushed boundaries.
Best known for her autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Angelou gave all people the freedom to think about their history in a way they never had before. The first feature documentary about her life, Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise, traces her incredible journey, shedding light on the untold aspects of her life through never-before-seen footage, rare archival photographs and videos, and her own words.
