Wonder what it takes to be a poem whispering inspiration inside the ears of the world? Nikki Giovanni is bold, honest and unrelenting in her poetic performance. Giovanni is a master poet who has not taken the easy road toward the formation of truth on paper. She is a poet whose knowledge and sensitivities run deep and are tied to this world. Her words are tied alongside the hands of the people, who are shifting times. The truth exists in the world and it is the job of the poet to pull the truth out of violentical air and place it with care upon the page to be casted from the mouth to the hearts of the people. Poetry is a body thing and bodily experience, it pulses and heals and transmits information that runs through the body.
