About this Event

Nikki Giovanni is a world-renowned poet, writer, commentator, activist, and educator. Over the past 30 years, her outspokenness, in her writing and in lectures, has brought the eyes of the world upon her. One of the most widely-read American poets, she prides herself on being " a Black American, a daughter, a mother, a professor of English", not to mention the author of some 30 books for both adults and children.

Giovanni will join us in a moderated Q&A followed by a book signing of her new collection of poetry, "A Good Cry" and new children's book, "I Am Loved" -- from 8:00 - 9:00pm.

Books will be available for sale!

This event is made possible by the leadership of the ALANA Cultural Center and the work of the 2018-19 MLK Planning Committee with generous support by the Bicentennial Committee.
