Welcome to Gwendolyn Brooks Class!

This year class names have been influenced by the Black Lives Matter movement and are named after people who have achieved incredible things. Gwendolyn Brooks was the first Black author to with the Pulitzer Prize for her writing. She was also poetry consultant to the Library of Congress, the first Black woman to hold that position, and poet laureate of the State of Illinois. She published a novel and many poetry collections, some for adults and others for children. We will look at some of her poetry for children throughout the year.
