The peom "Still I Rise" by Maya Angelou is basically and inspiration about overcoming great obstacles/opppression. Her work is based on the call for rights of african Americans. This poem is a call for blacks to be proud of their origin. It is against the prejudice and submission that the black addicts has to experience at the hands of the government and physicians and general public throughout America.
thanked the writer.

I feel that this poem I s demonstrating pride and justice of African Americans, it is suggesting that African Americans should be proud from were they came from, even though there was inequality in the past, African Americans, still made it.
