Poet, teacher and civil rights activist Nikki Giovanni joins us to talk about a lifetime of letters and activism. Her poems range from the black power movement to rapper Tupac Shakur to President Obama. She lost a lung to cancer, then brought a stadium to tears in the wake of a campus shooting where she taught. Nikki Giovanni talks about the power of one, and how you find love in the most unexpected places.
Nikki Giovanni speaks on Sunday, March 27, at 2 p.m. at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel. The ticketed event is hosted by the Las Vegas Urban League.
Nikki Giovanni, poet and Distinguished Prof of English, Virginia Tech University

Each of them made a small commitment and became members of Nevada Public Radio. They didn’t have to — but because they did, you are here now. So we extend a hand and say, “Come join us!”
