  • Out of this collection of twenty-two interviews spanning two decades rises the distinctive voice of "the princess of black poetry." Nikki Giovanni entered the literary world at the height of the Black Arts Movement and quickly achieved not simple fame but stardom, a phenomenon almost unprecedented for a poet. Her first two volumes of poetry, Black Feeling, Black Talk and Black Judgement, gave expression to the thoughts and feelings of a generation of young

Also included is an excerpt from A Poetic Equation, her lengthy talk with the poet Margaret Walker. In this exchange of ideas and opinions with Walker a young poet new to the literary world assumes the role of spokesperson for a generation
