LIL #3: High Cinema (We Real Cool, Gwendolyn Brooks)

This week we covered “We Real Cool” by Gwendolyn Brooks! We also covered Abby’s height, the white savior complex, and how the Oscars made mistakes this year with their Best Picture selection. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Check it out!


Special thank you to Alex “Bones” Niederberger for the use of our theme song, “Lit is Lit is Lit.” This episode was written and performed by HR Bumgarner and Abby Scadden. It was edited by Julie Tran and Will Robertson. The logo was created by Will Robertson. Special thank you to the Mass Communications & Journalism Building at the University of Denver for the use of their facilities and equipment.


If you wanna read more of Gwendolyn Brooks, we highly recommend checking out her page on the Poetry Foundation. Check out the anthology that “We Real Cool” is in! The Bean Eaters is on Goodreads, there’s a lot of places you can find it there.
