Joe Smoke Thoughts, The Blackman Read Aloud Hour, Saluting Gwendolyn Brooks

December 3, 2000 the date of jubilee for ancestor Gwendolyn Brooks, 19 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.
