Legacies: The Poetry of Nikki Giovanni

Legacies: The Poetry of Nikki Giovanni

“Those who have gone before and those who are yet to be birthed – it is to these that we owe our legacies. I am hopeful we are at least as strong as our foreparents and I am confident we will be as intelligent as the next century requires.” This collection of poetry by Nikki Giovanni explores the relationships between generations, and the wisdom that is passed among them in her moving poems: “Once A Lady told Me,” “Mother’s Habits” and “Legacies.”
