Joe Smoke Thoughts, The Blackman Read Aloud Hour, Saluting Gwendolyn Brooks
June 7, 1917, the birthdate of Gwendolyn Brooks, 101 years ago today. This magnificent woman of prose. I salute her with 10 minutes of just a few of her poems. Gwendolyn Brooks wrote 20 books of poetry. So clearly I cannot do her justice in 10 minutes but at least I can say rest in eternal peace, my sister.
