This is a reading of Maya Angelou's poem "Still I Rise." The author provides an introduction to this reading of the poem.

"The Slaves Lament" It was in sweet Senegal that my foes did me enthrall For the lands of Virginia-ginia O;Torn from that lovely shore, and must never see it more, And alas! I am weary, weary O! Torn from &c.All on that charming coast is no bitter snow and frost, Like the lands of Virginia-ginia O;There streams for ever flow, and there flowers for ever blow, And alas! I am weary, weary O! There streams &c.The burden I must bear, while the cruel scourge I fear, In the lands of Virginia-ginia O;And I think on friends most dear with the bitter, bitter tear, And Alas! I am weary, weary O! And I think &c.

This poem is by Robert Burns and is called "The Slaves Lament." It was written in 1792.

Texts Used

The New York State Museum has done a whole exhibit on “The First Step to Freedom – Abraham Lincoln’s Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation." This resource takes you through different parts of slavery including the resistance they had, the conflict, and the emancipation proclamation. The photo above is called "The Storming of Fort Wagner." The photo is also more explained in the exhibit.

The Smithsonian Institution also did an exhibit on the Civil War and part of it included Slavery. This resource is great because it gives more knowledge of what lead up to the war. One was Nat Turner's rebellion in 1831. This resource goes more in detail. Nat Turner is pictured on your left.
