An Evening With Nikki Giovanni

Through the use of historic film footage and live performances, An Evening With Nikki Giovanni provides a profound look into the wonderful life of one of the world's most outstanding spoken word artists – Nikki Giovanni. Taped live in Atlanta, Georgia at Georgia Public Broadcasting, writer, novelist and playwright Pearl Cleage interviewed her former childhood babysitter, Giovanni, in front of a standing room only audience. Opening with three Atlanta-based spoken word artists performing one of Giovanni's poems, Ego Tripping (there may be a reason why), An Evening With Nikki Giovanni details Giovanni’s childhood, the origins of her writing career and discusses her feelings about young people and hip hop culture.
