Poetry cometh in the month of September, and what a big month it is for a variety of poetry for poetry lovers. Take a look at what will hit in September!
Award winning poet Nikki Giovanni is due to release Standing in the Need of Prayer, which “poetically describes the vulnerability of black men and the ongoing injustice they encounter in America. Noted poet, Nikki Giovanni speaks to participants of the Million Man March, Tupac’s mother, and expresses her own trepidation felt in response to late-night callers who may or may not be the bearers of tragic news. Her writings are bookended with poems by DXTR Spits (Jordan Holmes) as well as Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, Jericho Brown.”
Due out September 9, 2020.
