Her first book of poetry, A Street in Bronzeville, was published in 1945 and won multi-racial critical acclaim.

In 1950, she won the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry for the volume Annie Allen In 1968, she was appointed Poet Laureate for Illinois, which she continued to hold until her death. In 1976, she was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In 1988, she was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame. Brooks was a phenomenally gifted talent.
