"Head Off and Split" by Nikky Finney

"Head Off and Split" by Nikky Finney

Presented by Utah Humanities at Calvary Baptist Church

As part of a UHC Quick Grant, the U of U Guest Writers Series presents a discussion of “Head Off and Split” by Nikky Finney. 

The poems in Nikky Finney’s breathtaking new collection Head Off & Split sustain a sensitive and intense dialogue with emblematic figures and events in African American life: from civil rights matriarch Rosa Parks to former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, from a brazen girl strung out on lightning to a terrified woman abandoned on a rooftop during Hurricane Katrina.
