Event description

Description

Go beyond the page as Dr. Cherisse Jones-Branch provides insight to help you further enjoy Maya Angelou’s well-known memoir, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. This classic was chosen by last year's Fest audiences, and you'll have a chance to vote for the 2019 classic as well.

After the talk, enjoy a screening of Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise, which “weaves her words with rare and intimate archival photographs and video…from her upbringing in the Depression-era South to her work with Malcolm X in Ghana to her inaugural poem for President Bill Clinton…The film premiered to critical acclaim at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and has won 9 awards on 3 continents.”
