Nikki Giovanni–How to Make It in Poetry

Toure Show Ep 3: Nikki Giovanni: How To Make It In Poetry Original Air Date: November 29, 2017 Nikki Giovanni is one of the greatest living poets in the world and a joy to be around. She’s funny, smart, humble, and undeniably cool. The best dinner guest imaginable. In this hour plus conversation from November of 2017 we talk about: • Her insight into Trump voters after a life lived in Appalachia. • The impact of watching domestic violence in her childhood home. • How she rebounded from a health scare by getting onstage. • What makes a great poem. • How she learned to cry. • Why she feels she needs to go into outer space.
