Review: And Still We Rise: The Trials and Triumphs of Twelve Gifted Inner-City Students

Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom? Did you want to see me broken? Bowed head and lowered eyes? Shoulders falling down like teardrops, Weakened by my soulful cries? Does my haughtiness offend you?

Miles Corwin was moved to write And Still We Rise when he heard about a 15 year old boy splayed out on a South-Central Los Angeles street corner with several gunshot wounds. This child had the misfortunate to be on the wrong street corner at the wrong time. In this book, it is the students who are remarkable, not the teachers. The real story here is the students who struggle through life mostly spent on the streets, but find refuge and personal success in Advanced Placement classes in a gifted program at Crenshaw High School. As educators with a bent toward the progressive, it is important to be reminded that there is not just one way to encourage success, even with the most disenfranchised youth.

Broadly speaking, the poem is an assertion of the dignity and resilience of marginalized people in the face of oppression. Because Angelou often wrote about blackness and black womanhood, "Still I Rise" can also be read more specifically as a critique of anti-black racism. You may write Does my sassiness Just like moons

It was published during one of the most productive periods in Angelou's career; she had written three autobiographies and published two other volumes of poetry up to that point. Angelou considered herself a poet and a playwright, but was best known for her seven autobiographies, especially her first, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings , although her poetry has also been successful. She began, early in her writing career, alternating the publication of an autobiography and a volume of poetry. Although her poetry collections have been best-sellers, they have not received serious critical attention. And Still I Rise is made up of 32 short poems, divided into three parts. The poems' themes focus on a hopeful determination to rise above difficulty and discouragement, and on many of the same topics as Angelou's autobiographies and previous volumes of poetry. Two of her most well-known and popular poems, "Phenomenal Woman" and "Still I Rise", are found in this volume.

Still I Rise

Miles Corwin

На стене криво висело баскетбольное кольцо. Пол был уставлен десятками больничных коек. В дальнем углу, прямо под табло, которое когда-то показывало счет проходивших здесь матчей, он увидел слегка покосившуюся телефонную будку. Дай Бог, чтобы телефон работал, мысленно взмолился Беккер. Двигаясь к будке, он нащупывал в кармане деньги. Нашлось 75 песет никелевыми монетками, сдача от поездки в такси, - достаточно для двух местных звонков. Он вежливо улыбнулся озабоченной медсестре и вошел в будку.

 - Она безуспешно старалась говорить спокойно. Джабба нахмурился. - Мы это уже обсудили. Забыла. - Там проблема с электричеством.

 И у тебя нет кредитной карточки. - Есть, но отец ее заблокировал. Он думает, что я балуюсь наркотиками.

Беккер повернулся к нему и заговорил на беглом немецком: - Noch etwas. Что-нибудь. Что помогло бы мне найти девушку, которая взяла кольцо.

Девушка с сумкой была уже на улице. - Меган! - завопил он, грохнувшись на пол. Острые раскаленные иглы впились в глазницы.
