After collecting and reviewing material and because of the nature of our topic we chose to fellow the MLA (8edition) method,and we see it would be better to divide this topic into four chapters. The first chapter reviews the history of postmodernism, including definition of postmodern poetry, characteristics of this of postmodernism and the key figures of this era. The second chapter deal with feminism and feminist movement, deal with definition of feminism, major figures then the different waves of the movement. We devoted the third chapter to the discrimination and racism in American society; we started with definition of racism and discrimination, aspects of racism and the reason behind them. The chapter number four would be devoted to the analysis of Maya Angelou poem “Still I Rise”. So how has the black woman contributed in postmodern literature? and how has Maya Angelou helped woman and slavers by writing “Still I Rise”? and what were her goals from writing this poem?.
