*There are many riveting, untold stories in the American Masters documentary “Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise,” premiering Feb 21 at 8 p.m. on PBS.

The film from Bob Hercules and Rita Coburn Whack explores all 360 degrees of the late author and activist, including her early days as a dancer and singer.

There’s also a moment in the film where Dr. Angelou explains coming across a certain rapper on the set of John Singleton’s 1993 film “Poetic Justice.” Angelou’s poetry gave the film its play-on-words title, and Singleton cast her in a cameo role.
