Text by Margaret Blanchard, Video by Wes Unruh - 10/10/2018


Transformation is the key takeaway from 2017 Peabody Award winner “Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise,” according to filmmaker Rita Coburn. “That it is possible for an individual to transform and find her voice. That it is also possible for a country to transform, and I think we need to hear that now more than ever,” she says in this Peabody Conversation. The Peabody Media Center will host a FREE screening and Q&A with Coburn next Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 7:30 p.m. at Ciné in Athens.
