Nikki Giovanni

Tonight I saw Nikki Giovanni at Bucks County Community College
It was so nice to go to a poetry reading...but it was so much more than that.
Political, funny, living out loud
She rocks...
66 and better than ever
I bought this Hip Hop Speaks to Children
and can't wait to look and listen to it with my son
She said one thing that was really great:
"Stories heal"
And she spoke of when all the soldiers come home, before anything else,
they will need places like community colleges and safe places
they can be to tell their stories.
Thank you Nikki
