Chautauqua 2016 “Masters of their Craft” – Gwendolyn Brooks
History comes alive with Maryland Humanities’ FREE Chautauqua living history performance series each July. Audience members meet historical figures then participate in a thoughtful dialogue with each character. Chautauqua 2016 celebrates the Pulitzer Prize centennial with three characters: Duke Ellington, the incomparable showman; Gwendolyn Brooks, the first African American to win a Pulitzer Prize; and Ernest Hemingway, one of the greatest American literary figures of the twentieth century.
The 2016 Chautauqua Summer Series at CBMM is generously sponsored by Easton Eye Care and Karen and Langley Shook, and is funded in part by a grant from the Talbot County Arts Council, with revenues provided by the Maryland State Arts Council, Talbot County, and the Towns of Easton, Oxford and St Michaels.
