Maya Angelou Still Rise Scarf

on Uncommon Goods


"Leaving behind nights of terror and fear / I rise / Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear / I rise." It's hard to speak for Maya Angelou, so artist Tori Tissell lets her speak for herself. And the words? They'll give you goosebumps. This empowering scarf is screen-printed by hand with the renowned poet's entire poem, "Still I Rise." Within its soft, lightweight cloth is the determination and persistence of all people who have been undermined, disenfranchised, and denied equality. It makes a subtly inspiring, wearable statement for activist friends or the person who inspires you to get up each day and march on. Handmade in Portland, Oregon.
