Maya Angelou (Poetry For Young People) : Award-winning poet, author, playwright, historian, songwriter, singer, dancer, stage and screen producer, director, and civil rights activist: Dr. Maya Angelou needs no introduction. She is a true American icon - and now she is the first living poet included in Sterling's celebrated Poetry for Young People series. Twenty-five of her finest poems capture a range of emotions and experiences, from the playful âHarlem Hopscotchâ to the prideful âMe and My Workâ to the soul-stirring âStill I Rise.â While her writings deal with the historic struggles of African-Americans, they all resonate with spiritual strength and hope for the future that everyone can relate to. A special inclusion in this volume is âA Brave and Startling Truth,â written to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. Award-winning artist Jerome Lagarrigue masterfully illustrates each verse with evocative, stunning pictures.
