Summary
Gwendolyn Brooks grew up on the South Side of Chicago, reading constantly and writing poetry from a very young age. Nurtured by her parents, who celebrated her gift with words, she would ultimately write twenty collections of poetry, two autobiographies, and a novel, giving voice to the urban Black experience and becoming the first Black writer to win the prestigious Pulitzer Prize. Alice Faye Duncan has created her own song to celebrate Gwendolyn's life and work, illuminating the hope and promise of the blank page, the tireless struggle of revision, and the sweet reward of success
