Gwendolyn Brooks, Adrienne Rich, Fleda Jackson Brown and Natasha Trethewey—the four women who are the focus of this exhibition—are celebrated American poets, and Brown is a professor emerita of English at UD. Through a variety of poetic forms, they explore African-American life, gender, nature and other topics. This exhibition coincided with both Black History Month in February and Women’s History Month in March of 2018. It includes a number of the poets’ major works.
