RISE Feminist Necklace Inspired by Maya Angelou's Still I Rise

The RISE feminist necklace is inspired by the wonderful Maya Angelou.
Still I Rise.
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
’Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

Rise necklace

The pendant has a lovely weight to it and the chain feels secure. A beautiful reminder to not be invisible or dismissed.

Very happy daughter!

My daughter was delighted with her necklace - who knew Santa was a feminist?! 😉

Love this shop!

I've bought a few things from Black and Beech and they've always been great quality, beautifully packaged and with excellent customer service. Most recently I bought a necklace for a friend's birthday and she absolutely loved it. Thank you Stacey!

I’ve bought quite a few things from Black & Beech now - they’re always great quality and beautifully designed. The delivery and packaging is also fab. My husband loves his Dad Day present and it fits perfectly.
