NIKKI GIOVANNI: A GOOD CRY & LOVE POEMS What We Learn From Tears and Laughter

by | Read by Nikki Giovanni

Poetry & Drama • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

The acclaimed activist, educator, and poet shares her life story through poetry and narrative. Her voice is familiar to the ear--it's a voice that has been used to combat injustices, honor unsung heroes, and create old and new ways to love. She whips through certain poems as if their rhythm and timing call for speed. At times, she offers a rhyming intonation that sounds a bit like Dr. Seuss. It's playful yet, due to its content, suggestive. Overall, Giovanni's seasoned voice sounds determined, clear, and poignant. Her emotionally complex love poems span her own history, which runs the gamut from an abusive family to friendships with some of the most extraordinary people ever. Listening to this artist is a real treat. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2017]
