Nikki Giovanni, a world-renowned poet, writer, commentator, activist, and educator, will speak in the Hendrix-Chenault Theater at The Lovett School at 7:00 on February 21. Over the past 30 years, the outspoken nature
of her writing and speaking 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." The Academy of American Poets voted Giovanni #1 poet for the spring of 2007. Giovanni remains as determined and committed as ever to the fight for civil rights and equality. Always insisting on presenting the truth as she sees it, she has maintained a prominent place as a strong voice of the black community. Her focus is on the individual—specifically, the power one has to make a difference in oneself and in the lives of others.
