Sundance 2016: Maya Angelou and Still I Rise
Friday, we’re talking about the life of poet and activist Maya Angelou. A new documentary premiering at Sundance tells the story of Angelou’s journey past racism and abuse to become one of our greatest voices. But filmmaker Rita Coburn Whack says she didn’t want this film to be just about what Angelou did in her life, but also about who she was and how she loved. Whack and co-director Bob Hercules join Doug to explain how Maya Angelou’s story gives us a sense of who we all are as Americans.
