    A white face goes with a white mind. Occasionally a black face goes with a white mind. Very seldom a white face will have a black mind.
    Nikki Giovanni (b. 1943)

    Writers don’t write from experience, although many are hesitant to admit that they don’t. ...If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.
    —Nikki Giovanni (b. 1943)
