Four Poets

poster for Four Poets exhibition

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.
