This black and white photograph depicts Nikki Giovanni. Shown from the waist up, she is seated and leans sideways on her right elbow. She holds a stack of her volumes of poetry in her right hand and leans her right cheek on the volumes. Wearing a dark sweater over a collared shirt, she gazes directly at the viewer.
