eNOTHING Audio Series -- Maya Angelou reads her own "Still I Rise"

We've featured several of Dr. Maya Angelou's inspirational poems in our "Poem of the Day" and "Top 100 or so..." blog posts, with fabulous results.  Angelou's poetry and her legacy has served to raise the awareness of poetry in the 20th century - in fact she is perhaps the most popular poet in recent history.

Her themes are largely based on pride, feminism, and a very positive and inspirational approach to celebrate one's unique self.

Although she is lauded for her poems about race and women, she has served as a powerful role model to all -- don't accept inequality, maintain your pride, and confront your enemies and your battles -- with a smile.

Enjoy her wonderful reading:
