The Department of Pan-African Studies at California State University, Los Angeles presented its 10th Annual Pan-African Studies Forum on May 10, featuring world-renowned poet, writer, activist and educator Nikki Giovanni. Giovanni established herself in her early career as one of the most prominent voices of the Black Arts Movement, with a revolutionary perspective on political, social and cultural experiences.
