A Book for Brooks

04 December 2016 / By The Chicago Community Trust Staff

Review of Revise the Psalm: Works Inspired by the writing of Gwendolyn Brooks by Quraysh Ali Lansana and Sandra Jackson-Opoku



In his book Honoring Genius, Gwendolyn Brooks: The Narrative of Craft, Art, Kindness and Justice, Haki R. Madhubuti writes: “Ms. Brooks was a woman who could not live without her art, but who had never put her art above or before the people she wrote about.” With this reflection in mind, examine the ways in which Brooks’s prose and poetry reflect the human experience as well as the experiences of Blacks in America.
