This mixed media collage incorporates a sliver of paper from the Nikki Giovanni page on which "Ego Tripping" appears in the anthology of poetry titled In Search of Color Everywhere, a book which offered to me, for the first time (back in high school), a window into the vast world of Black poetry. As a teacher, I was passionate about and an advocate of a more diversified curriculum. We have so far to go, but books like this are a reminder of how grand our contributions have been.
