Make Me Rain With The Legendary Nikki Giovanni Virtually At The Schomburg Center In Harlem

December 2, 2020

Join us for an evening of poetry and conversation with legendary poet, Nikki Giovanni.

In her new book, Make Me Rain, Giovanni celebrates her loved ones and unapologetically declares her pride in her Black heritage, while exploring the enduring impact of the twin sins of racism and white nationalism.

Giovanni reaffirms her place as a uniquely vibrant and relevant American voice with poems such as “I Come from Athletes” and “Rainy Days”—calling out segregation; as well as “Unloved (for Aunt Cleota)” and “”When I Could No Longer”—her personal elegy for the relatives who saved her from an abusive home life.

Stirring, provocative, and resonant, the poems in Make Me Rain pierce the heart and nourish the soul.
