Nikki Giovanni is one of the most celebrated poets of her generation. Her unique style weaves together strong ties to family, experiences as an African American woman growing up in the South, and her pride as an activist. We asked her about whether she considers herself a good poet, and how she feels America needs to come together amid so many divisions. Giovanni is speaking Wednesday at 7pm at Georgia Southern University. Her lecture is part of the University’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr .
