Inspiration. Education. Acknowledgement. NAMI North Carolina’s 18th Annual Conference promises to be all this and more. Inspired by Maya Angelou’s motivational work, “And Still I Rise” is this year’s hopeful theme that will encapsulate challenges associated with mental illness, and the determination to not give up, and finding a way to thrive – regardless of society’s stigmas and current shortcomings
This virtual conference is scheduled for Saturday, October 10, 2020 and will be offered at no charge to participants.
Maya Angelou’s poem “Still I Rise” was an inspiration to us in establishing our Conference theme this challenging year. While written about the eternal fight of women and slavery, it really reads as a signature piece to encourage all who may struggle with obstacles and are determined not to give up. “You may write me down in history/ With your bitter, twisted lies/ You may tread me in the very direct/ But still, like dust, I’ll rise.” more »
And Still I Rise is a hopeful theme that will encapsulate all who may face injustice.
