Black Feeling, Black Talk / Black Judgement by Nikki Giovanni


Wow. This kinda ebbed and flowed between militant black revolutionary poems and simple and beautiful love poems. I loved it.

Update for June 19th, 2018: Ethereal, loving, violently militant all describe Nikki Giovanni's poems in this collection. I guess that's the same impression I had as the first time I read this book, but one thing that struck me this time is how enraged she is about MLK's assassination. This makes me want to ask the people around me who were alive at the time about their reactions to his death.
