Transcript of The Rose in the Concrete

Rising in the Concrete
Tupac Shakur (1971 - 1996)
"Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature's laws wrong, it learned to walk without having feet. Funny, it seems to by keeping it's dreams; it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared." - Tupac Shakur
"I know they like to beat you down a lot
When you come around the block, brothers clown a lot
But please don't cry, dry your eyes, never let up
Forgive but don't forget, girl, keep your head up"

- Tupac Shakur, "Keep Ya Head Up"

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

I rise
I rise
I rise.
from Maya Angelou, "Still I Rise"

Dear Reader,

When it came time to create a sample project for the multi-genre research project, I thought deeply about a figure or movement that would be both a practical model for students to use when creating their projects, and also an engaging and inspiring figure for young people. I determined that no one embodies this more than Tupac Shakur.
