MLK 2019 Keynote Address: A Conversation with Nikki Giovanni

Nikki Giovanni is a world-renowned poet, writer, commentator, activist, and educator. Over the past 30 years, her outspokenness, in her writing and in lectures, has brought the eyes of the world upon her. One of the most widely-read American poets, she prides herself on being " a Black American, a daughter, a mother, a professor of English", not to mention the author of some 30 books for both adults and children.

Space is limited; Ticket is required. Please use this link to obtain your tickets!

Giovanni will join us in a moderated Q&A followed by a book signing of her new collection of poetry, "A Good Cry" and new children's book, "I Am Loved" -- from 8:00 - 9:00pm. Books will be available for sale!
