First reissue of this powerful blend of funk, soul, & poetry.
Pressed on color vinyl and packaged in striking new artwork with liner
notes by Camae Ayewa (Moor Mother).
"I wonder what it takes to be a poem whispering inspiration inside the
ears of the world? Nikki Giovanni is bold, honest and unrelenting in her
poetic performance. Giovanni is a master poet who has not taken the
easy road toward the formation of truth on paper. She is a poet whose
knowledge and sensitivities run deep and are tied to this world. Her
words tied alongside the hands of the people, who are shifting times.
The truth exists in the world and it is the job of the poet to pull the
truth out of violentical air and place it with care upon the page to be
casted from the mouth to the hearts of the people." – Camae Ayewa (Moor
Mother, Irreversible Entanglements)
