Maya Angelou’s And Still I Rise has been in the making for some time now, and it’s great to see that the documentary will finally be released. Known as one of the most famous and important poets/writers in American history, it comes as no surprise we’ll be getting a closer look at her life.
The film features interviews from former president Bill Clinton, Cicely Tyson, Oprah Winfrey, Common, and current presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. The trailer includes excerpts from these cultural figures, as well as glimpses into Angelou’s life including home videos, rare interviews, and more.
And Still I Rise will be released in select theaters October 14, 2016.
