World-renowned poet, writer, commentator, activist, and educator, Nikki Giovanni, will be the keynote speaker for the 2014 Martin Luther King Celebration. One of the most widely-read American poets, she prides herself on being "a Black American, a daughter, a mother, a professor of English." Her focus is on the individual, specifically, on the power one has to make a difference in oneself, and thus, in the lives of others. The author of some 30 books for both adults and children, Nikki Giovanni is a University Distinguished Professor at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. Come join us to hear this outstanding poet and writer for an enjoyable evening. Tickets will be available at the Kenan Auditorium Box Office on January 6, 2014. A minimum of four (4) tickets are allowed per individual. For groups, contact 910.962.2480.
