    The Life & Legacy of Gwendolyn Brooks

    A look at the cultural and political force of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gwendolyn Brooks.

    "Jackson's sensitive portrait of this 'quiet genius' and her finely calibrated insights into her writing celebrate Brooks's warmth, her 'bitter bite, her slicing sarcasm,' and the revolutionary provocation and power of her courageous, caring, intricately faceted poems, poems to read and reread for their emotional, social, and moral repercussions-and for their expounding beauty." - Booklist, Starred Review
