“A prolific and widely respected poet, Lucille Clifton’s work emphasizes endurance and strength through adversity, focusing particularly on African-American experience and family life. Awarding the prestigious Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize to Clifton in 2007, the judges remarked that ‘One always feels the looming humaneness around Lucille Clifton’s poems—it is a moral quality that some poets have and some don’t.'”
