About the Book

PEN USA West

Seasoned journalist, Miles Corwin spent a year in the classroom with the members of the only gifted magnet program in South-Central Los Angeles. A remarkable group of young scholars, these seniors have managed to excel despite the often volatile environment in which they live.

And Still We Rise is a moving chronicle of their courage, achievements, strength, and resilient spirit-their personal crises, setbacks, catastrophes, and triumphs—over an unforgettable school year. In addition, it is a fascinating depiction of the clash between two teachers: Toni Little, an inspiring but unpredictable white educator with a passion for great literature, and Anita “Mama” Moultrie, an outspoken black teacher whose afrocentric teaching style differs dramatically from Little’s traditional approach.

But ultimately, it is these exceptional students—a group of talented, lively, and determined young men and women—who will remain with readers long after they finish the book.
