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).
"What does it mean to be a Black woman poet in America writing for
liberation? “I am black alive looking back at you” June Jordan so
masterfully said and it speaks volumes to what so many Black women poets
in the 70’s and 80’s did for the culture of poetry, speaking volumes
to the legacies they built that we can stand on with pride and more
agency to express ourselves and for that we are forever thankful. Nikki
Giovanni would go on to inspire many great poets and would in her work
provide a landscape for future visioning of a better self and world.
Here, she shows us what can be done with words on record. Cultivating
liberation and healing within the world of poetry live on a record that
will stand the test of time." – Camae Ayewa (Moor Mother, Irreversible
