The Art of Langston Hughes

Beyond being a key figure of the Harlem Renaissance, Langston Hughes also lived and worked in Chicago for many years. Permeating his work is pride in the African-American identity and its diverse culture. In The Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance, Sandra L West noted,  “He confronted racial stereotypes, protested social conditions, and expanded African America’s image of itself; a “people’s poet” who sought to reeducate both audience and artist by lifting the theory of the black aesthetic into reality.” Experience five exceptional poems, plays, and stories all by this extraordinary artist.
