Nikki Giovanni on education, produced by WRFG, is a recorded speech by poet Nikki Giovanni from a conference at the Atlanta Reading Center. Giovanni speaks about the importance of literacy and teaching, respect for the mind and thought, the difficulties faced by black children in schools, and the issue that most studies regarding black education are conducted by white researchers. She concludes her speech by reading two of her poems: "Introspection" and "The Life I Live," 1978. (Portions of this description were derived from the original NFCB Program Service Catalog.)
