And Still I Rise, by Maya Angelou
Title: And Still I Rise
Author: Maya Angelou
Genre/ issues: Poetry. Race. Identity.
I’ve always loved Maya Angelou’s poetry, and I picked up this edition of And Still I Rise at @diabolikbooks the other day. This adorable little set-up under the stairs was the perfect place to sit and read it today. So much powerful poetry – some I was familiar with, but a surprising number I’d not read or heard before, which was a great surprise!
I love the spaces @curtinuniversity have designed for students to read, relax and study around campus. This is one of my favourites – especially when a handsome man pops in to take you to lunch after he’s finished teaching classes for the morning!
