AMERICAN MASTERS: "MAYA ANGELOU: AND STILL I RISE"
February 21, 2017  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

This new documentary includes an interview conducted with the performer, writer and activist shortly before her death in 2014. She’d already told her own story, quite compellingly, in her bestselling and influential autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings – but this film, by Bob Hercules and Rita Coburn Whack, uses archival photos and footage to bring Angelou’s story, especially her early years, to very vivid life.
