The year 2017 marks the centennial of the birth of Gwendolyn Brooks, a lifelong chronicler of Black life in America who expressed Black experiences in America with her cool, courageous, artistic and politically charged poetry and prose. Brooks was also the first black author to win the Pulitzer Prize and was poetry consultant to the Library of Congress. The author of the poetry collections Annie Allen and The Bean Eaters, and the novel Maud Martha, Gwendolyn Brooks claims an irrefutable place in our literary canon. In recognition of her life and works, the Center for Black Literature is proud to take part in the “Our Miss Brooks: A Centennial Celebration.
