Make Me Rain

"Good for us and all the Literate World." ~ 76%

What an honor, pleasure and delight to review an advance copy of Make Me Rain by one of thee most celebrated poets. This new collection speaks to the injustices of our society in Nikki Giovanni's signature sharp style. She even lets readers into her personal home life by sharing stories of loved ones and proudly displaying her black heritage through verse.

Nikki Giovanni minces no words. There is no guesswork in her prose. She unapologetically writes about racism, marriage, black athletes, the current political administration and shares her own truth. It's a treat whenever authors give a glimpse into their personal bubble. To get her perspective on the current state of our lives was enlightening and motivational. 

In the midst of today's highly emotional unpredictable times, read Make Me Rain to nourish your soul. I recommend. I stan, periodt.

Happy Pub Day to the G.O.A.T. Nikki Giovanni! Make Me Rain: Poems & Prose is now available.
