Nikki Giovanni was one of the breakout authors of the Black Arts Movement, and continued her powerful career throughout the sixties to present day. Now, in this intimate meditation of her life, featuring the poet and narrated by actress Taraji P. Henson, we are able to immerse ourselves in the historic moments that have helped inform her powerful body of work. (dir. Joe Brewster, Michèle Stephenson, U.S., 2023, 102m)
