Gwendolyn Brooks was the first African American to win a Pulitzer Prize. This is the copy that was sent to the Pulitzer Prize Committee. She was awarded the 1950 poetry prize for this book, a verse narrative pairing the mythic imagery of a young woman's hopes and dreams with the realities of her life as a black woman.
