Watch Nicki Minaj’s Lovely Reading Of Maya Angelou’s “Still I Rise”
Here is Nicki Minaj’s beautiful and stirring rendition of Maya Angelou’s classic “Still I Rise,” from the upcoming concert special, Shining A Light: A Concert for Progress on Race in America, airing on A&E this Saturday at 8 p.m. EST. Minaj nails it, from delivery to intent.
If you are also wondering what a “concert for progress on race” could possibly do to actually make progress on race in America, the good news is that there is a way to actually help, like, with your money. A&E created the Fund for Progress on Race in America Powered by the United Way which will start by building a memorial at Charleston’s Mother Emmanuel Church, where terrorist Dylann Roof killed nine Black churchgoers earlier this year.
