60 seconds of Gwendolyn Brooks’ poetry. Brooks was one the first African Americans to receive a Pulitzer. In grad school, I had the good fortunate of meeting her when I picked her up in my old rusty Honda CRX to attend an event. I was so embarrassed by the condition of my vehicle. She was so gracious. I went on to write my Master’s and Dissertation on her poetry. I owe a lot to this great poet.
