You’ll always catch us finding ways to uplift all of our historically Black colleges and universities out there, one in particular being Rock-T’s always timely “HBCU U-KNOW” tribute.

Today he sends a shoutout to Nashville’s own Fisk University by way of honoring celebrated poet and Tennessee native Nikki Giovanni.

As a Fisk graduate of 1967, with honors at that, Giovanni is easily one of the school’s greatest success stories. The eagerness for education proved to be strong in the NAACP Image Award-winner, so much so that she’s balanced roles as a professor at multiple universities since graduating. The most prominent of those has been her tenure at Virginia Tech as a University Distinguished Professor, which she’s held down since 1987.
