Florence Price – String Quartet No. 2 in A minor

Before Gwendolyn Brooks became the first Black person to win the Pulitzer Prize, she was a little girl who dared to dream. Inspired by the Coretta Scott King Award-winning book by Suzanne Slade and illustrated by Cozbi A. Cabrera, Exquisite: The Poetry and Life of Gwendolyn Brooks introduces viewers to one of Chicago’s most treasured poets, who found inspiration in colorful clouds and the people in her neighborhood, including children. The program includes music by composer Florence Price, who was the first African American woman to have a symphony premiered by a major orchestra — the Chicago Symphony Orchestra — in 1933.

This free program is perfect for ages 5 and up, and will be available to watch beginning on Thursday, May 13, 2021 starting at 12am Central.
