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.
