African American Women Writers

Eve L. Ewing (1986-), American poet, sociologist, children's book author, and comic book writer, is best known for Electric Arches (2017), a collection of poems, prose pieces, and visual art that recalls her childhood in Chicago, Illinois, during the 1990s, and for Ghosts in the Schoolyard: Racism and School Closings on Chicago's South Side (2018), a monograph that explores the controversial closure of approximately 50 public schools in Chicago beginning in 2013. Threaded throughout Ewing's work as creative writer, an academic, and an activist is a fierce appreciation for Chicago, her hometown, and its history of black political resistance, community organizing, and artistic expression.
