Synopsis

In this inspiring poem, Maya Angelou celebrates the courage of the human spirit over the harshest of obstacles. An ode to the power that resides in us all to overcome the most difficult circumstances, this poem is truly an inspiration and affirmation of the faith that restores and nourishes the soul. Entwined with the vivid paintings of Diego Rivera, the renowned Mexican artist, Angelou's words paint a portrait of the amazing human spirit, its quiet dignity, and pools of strength and courage.

An ideal gift for a friend, lover, or family member, this special edition will be treasured by all who receive it.

Excerpt

You may write me down
in history
With your bitter,
twisted lies,


You may trod me
in the very dirt
But still, like dust,
I'll rise.
Maya Angelou
