it was amazing
Read in January, 2009

This book may possibly be one of my new favorites! Not only because in my personal opinion, Nikki Giovanni is one of the greatest poets ever, but because her words are filled with the most anger and joy and rhythm that can go into words. Also, i always enjoy her awareness of race but never separation of races. It takes a lot to put your soul into a poem and after reading this collection of about three hundred, I fell as if i was not once deprived of anything she had to offer.
