  • And Still I Rise mostly soars, though, on the wings of Maya Angelou's own words and recollections. She lived a multifaceted life for the ages, overcoming a wealth of indignities while also rising above her own considerable faults and frailties.

  • Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise takes a conventional cradle-to-grave approach to its subject, but it succeeds as a vivid and moving portrait of an African-American icon.

  • Angelou herself is the star, one who is more riveting and original sitting in a chair, reciting the story of her life, than this -- or most, really -- documentary could ever hope to be on its own.

  • It's hard not to be inspired by a life this well lived.

    October 13, 2016 | Full Review…
  • If this adulatory "American Masters" production elides certain chapters of Angelou's biography, it nonetheless offers ample evidence of her commanding intensity and of her importance as an unwavering voice of the black experience.

    October 13, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Angelou's epic journey - from a mute girl in segregated Arkansas to an icon of civil rights, literature and entertainment - could easily be a 10-part miniseries.
