Within these pages one gets acquainted with one of our most influential poets ever. The poems here span thirty years from the 1960’s Black Arts Movement, through the civil right movement to the present mother. Giovanni’s work is refreshing, partly because she doesn’t write about her black experience with the fierceness that is often associated with blacks whom participated in the Civil Rights Movement. It is refreshing to read works that touch on the subject of race, by a black who seemingly doesn’t have any stored anger from that time in her life.
