Being that I was in the middle of finishing school, I didn't have time to look into more of her work. Over the summer, I downloaded The Collected Poetry of Nikki Giovanni: 1968-1998 (P.S.) on my iPod. Of course, life gets in the way and you get to only read a bit at a time. I'm still reading it, but I have to say that Nikki Giovanni is one powerful woman. She is not afraid to say anything.
I hope one day, I can be the same.
