Still I Rise is about resilience and strength: “You may shoot me with your words/You may cut me with your eyes/You may kill me with your hatefulness/But still, like air, I’ll rise.”

Angeloue is the author of more than 30 books and the recipient of more than 50 honorary degrees.

She died on 28 May, 2014 aged 86. Today would have been her 90th birthday.
