Quilting The Black-Eyed Pea : When Nikki Giovanni's poems first emerged during the Civil Rights and Black Arts Movements of the 1960s, she immediately took a place among the most celebrated and influential poets of the era. Giovanni continues to be lauded as one of the most commanding, luminous voices to grace America's political and poetic landscape. Quilting the Black-Eyed Pea is Nikki Giovanni's meditation on humanity and soul. It's her revelatory gaze at the world in which we live - and her hopeful declaration of the world she dreams we will one day call home.
