Gwendolyn Brooks: A Poet’s Work In Community
The online exhibition Gwendolyn Brooks: A Poet’s Work In Community – presented by the Morgan Library & Museum in conjunction with the in-person exhibition that took place from January 28 through June 5, 2022 and organized by Belle da Costa Green Curatorial Fellow Nicholas Caldwell – examines the social and political impact of Gwendolyn Elizabeth Brooks’ (1917-2000) body of work. Brooks is the first Black writer to win the Pulitzer Prize in any category. The online offering provides researchers and life-long learners with digital manuscripts, first editions, and booklets that commemorate her life and legacy as an advocate for change, mentor to many, and unapologetic Black writer of the 20th century.
In like manner, the online exhibition shares pivotal content about her career and role in the community of Bronzeville, Chicago, an all-Black neighborhood.
