Taking its name from the lines of Gwendolyn Brooks’ poem “The Second Sermon on the Warpland,” the Furious Flower Poetry Cetner is the nation’s first academic center for Black poetry.  The center is committed to ensuring the visibility, inclusion, and critical consideration of Black poets in American letters, as well as in the whole range of educational curricula. Their programming—which includes lectures, readings, seminars, and workshops—seeks to support and promote Black poets at all stages of their careers and to preserve the history of Black poets for future generations.
