Several weeks ago, I wrote about seeing award-winning poet Nikki Giovanni speak at TNCC. During that talk, Giovanni told us she was looking forward to an upcoming event at Virginia Tech to honor her friend, celebrated author Toni Morrison. The event, titled Sheer Good Fortune, a Celebration of the Life and Works of Toni Morrison, was held this past Tuesday (October 16), at Burruss Auditorium on the Virginia Tech campus.
I remember Giovanni speaking with excitement about this chance to celebrate and spend time with Morrison and pals (and fellow hosts) Maya Angelou and Dr. Joanne Gabbin. At the time, I put it out of my mind, figuring I'd never see it, but luckily for me, and others, Virginia Tech has posted a video of the evening's events. It's long (almost two hours), but if you have some time, you can check it out here!
I know what I'll be doing at least part of this weekend!
