Celebrating African American History Month-People

"A lot of people resist transitiod therefore never allow themselves to enjoy who they are      
"Nikki Giovanni is one of the best-known African-American poets who reached prominence during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Her unique and insightful poetry testifies to her own evolving awareness and experiences: from child to young woman, from naive college freshman to seasoned civil rights activist, from daughter to mother. Frequently anthologized, Giovanni’s poetry expresses strong racial pride and respect for family" (from The Poetry Foundation).
