Quilts by Nikki Giovanni

 Beautiful soul.    Beautiful QUILT POEM


Giovanni gained initial fame in the late 1960s as one of the foremost authors of the 
Black Arts Movement. Influenced by the Civil Rights Movement and Black Power Movement of the period, her early work provides a strong, militant African-American perspective, leading one writer to dub her the "Poet of the Black Revolution".[2]During the 1970s, she began writing children's literature, and co-founded a publishing company, NikTom Ltd, to provide an outlet for other African-American women writers. 

Over subsequent decades, her works discussed social issues, human relationships, and hip hop.
