Nikki holds 21 honorary degrees in the Literary Arts and is known as the "Princess of Poetry" since blooming out of the Black Arts Movement in America.

racing against the sun and foundation-wise:rock-solid touches hearts as a beautiful tribute to nature, people, poetry, books, and butterflies....all of our favorites!
