I've been a big Nikki Giovanni fan since I was in high school. While I find her remarkably interesting, insightful, and down to earth, I was really hoping that there would be more of her poetry included in the interview. The one piece that Brian Lamb read, he butchered, and the one piece she read, she didn't read all of.
I could have gotten more culture from watching Comedy Central. Among other garbage, boorish discussions of why she picks her nose. Gives a pretence of abhorring racism but is a poster child for it.
