The culminating moment of the Gwendolyn Brooks Conference: Here Giovanni delivers the keynote address as the 2010 Gwendolyn Brooks Conference's Giant's Day honoree, a distinction bestowed upon writers and scholars who have made unparalleled contributions to Black Diasporic Literature. Past honorees include luminaries such as Amiri Baraka, Walter Mosley, the late Octavia Butler and Sonia Sanchez. Giovanni offers commentary that is both provocative and delightful – a treat for fans and lovers of literature.
