First Time On Vinyl Since 1975!
Cut & Pressed At Third Man!

First reissue of this powerful blend of funk, soul, & poetry. Pressed on color vinyl and packaged in striking new artwork with liner notes by Camae Ayewa (Moor Mother).

"What does it mean to be a Black woman poet in America writing for liberation? 'I am black alive looking back at you,' June Jordan so masterfully said and it speaks volumes to what so many Black women poets in the '70s and '80s did for the culture of poetry, speaking volumes to the legacies they built that we can stand on with pride and more agency to express ourselves, and for that we are forever thankful. Nikki Giovanni would go on to inspire many great poets and would in her work provide a landscape for future visioning of a better self and world. Here, she shows us what can be done with words on record. Cultivating liberation and healing within the world of poetry live on a record that will stand the test of time.

She has created an album that will provide research and inspiration for decades to come. A poet's words are timeless and possess the power to live in multiple temporalities. A poet's words can allow the listener to travel throughout time. It is our job as the listener to be open to all possibilities of truth and change. On this album we bear witness to the power of poetry and we witness a poem in master form, free and without fear, but full of love. This album is a testament to what poetry can do and how it can transform and unite. Nikki Giovanni is a poet for us, a true champion for the people."
