This book proved that Giovanni was calling for a revolution that would beat the norms. It called for people to understand and view their lives from a personal perspective without losing sight of the political undertones that were an integral part of this perception. This is evident in the last words of this volume which includes a poem that talks of how people can “build what we can become when we dream.” Giovanni’s first work is ample proof that she was a writer burgeoning into a professional and profound author who was on her ways to win the hearts of millions. After the success of Black Feeling Black Talk Giovanni began work towards various other books. The widely-acclaimed Black Judgment and with these also came, My house, The women and the Men and various other works over a successive period of years. Because of all her works and writings, Giovanni is also famous as a speaker and is often called by colleges and universities to come and talk of civil rights and equality. A recent one was held Voorhees College for the Black History Month Program. With an attendance of 500 people, Giovanni spoke to the young students about the sufferings of civil rights activists like Martin Luther King Jr. In this talk, Giovanni spoke of how Barack Obama’s victory in the elections is not a symbol of change but the sign of being able to make a change. .
