One of America?s most celebrated poets challenges us with this powerful and deeply personal collection of verse that speaks to the injustices of society while illuminating the depths of her own heart.

 

For more than thirty years, Nikki Giovanni?s poetry has inspired, enlightened, and dazzled readers. As sharp and outspoken as ever, this artist long hailed as a healer and a sage returns with this profound book of poetry in which she continues to call attention to injustice and give readers an unfiltered look into the most private parts of herself.

 

In Make Me Rain, she celebrates her loved ones and unapologetically declares her pride in her black heritage, while exploring the enduring impact of the twin sins of racism and white nationalism. Giovanni reaffirms her place as a uniquely vibrant and relevant American voice with poems such as ?I Come from Athletes? and ?Rainy Days??calling out segregation and Donald Trump; as well as ?Unloved (for Aunt Cleota)? and ??When I Could No Longer??her personal elegy for the relatives who saved her from an abusive home life.

 

Stirring, provocative, and resonant, the poems in Make Me Rain pierce the heart and nourish the soul.
