Remembering Gloria Naylor

A writer of capable female characters who were the personification of their times, Gloria Naylor was a pro at depicting more than the neck-wiggling, eye-rolling and smart-talking black women.

The Women of Brewster Place. Linden Hills. Bailey's Cafe. Mama Day. The Men of Brewster Place. Each book is her legacy to the world.

She won the American Book Award and the National Book Award for 1st novel in 1983, the same year Alice Walker won the National Book Award for best novel for The Color Purple.

Talent Overload.


  1. I'm sorry to hear this. I loved her books. She leaves a wonderful legacy. I remember Brewster Place on TV.

  2. She does. I remember being pretty excited to see "Brewster" on TV. All thoughts facets of us in one place
