Still I Rise: The Persistence of Phenomenal Women by Marlene Wagman-Geller

In this inspiring multi-biography, Marlene Wagman-Geller profiles 25 women from the last 100 years who made their marks in disparate fields. These intrepid individuals overcame great adversity to shape modern history and culture. Actress Hattie McDaniel, the first African-American to win an Academy Award, fought against racism from both the black and white community. Alice Herz Sommer survived the brutality of a genocidal regime in the Nazi ghetto-labor camp Theresienstadt to become a world-renowned pianist. The book takes its title from Maya Angelous poem “Still I Rise,” which talks about “leaving behind nights of terror and fear.” Still I Rise is more than a collection of biographies and interesting historic tidbits. It is a roadmap to perseverance in the face of the most daunting and terrifying obstacles.

Oct Posted by ME. For the record, I hate that I have to review this. WHY in do I still have to seek out and devour books about incredible women? In Still I Rise, though, the author not only profiled women who were phenomenal but maybe not always household names, she weaves the tale of their own rising into the story. Bookmark the permalink.
