The poem “We real cool” by Gwendolyn Brooks was written in 1959 and published in 1960 in her third collection of poetry, “The Bean Eaters”. At the time this poem was written, the Civil Rights Movement was emerging. All schools had to undergo segregation, which frustrated many blacks. It was not only a separation of black and white, no; it was a discrimination against all African-Americans. Young people questioned their role in society, because they were told that black people do not belong there, they are different in a bad way, they will not have a future, are not good enough and of no account. After some time they started to believe what was said, they gave up the idea of having a proper future, because all whites said so.
