Film Screening: Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise

In Celebrating Black History Month we hope you will join us for a screening of Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise, a documentary film (2017) about the author/activist Maya Angelou

About Angelou: “Distinctly referred to as “a redwood tree, with deep roots in American culture,” Dr. Maya Angelou (April 4, 1928-May 28, 2014) led a prolific life. 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 (Random House), she gave people the freedom to think about their history in a way they never had before”.

Join us afterwards for refreshments + a discussion about the film
