Nikki Giovanni

Black History Month Day 11.

Although a lot of Nikki Giovanni’s poetry is based on socio-political upheavals, she also wrote semi-autobiographical poems that stem from her own experiences in life. She became a staunch supporter of other black women poets as well women in general. I chose “Mothers” because mother-daughter relationships fascinate me.

to see my mother we kissed
