Summary:
(1902-1967) Poet Langston Hughes attended an all-white school as a child. Feeling lonely and isolated, he turned to reading and writing poetry. Inspired by Carl Sandberg and Walt Whitman, Hughes wrote free verse, using African-American dialects, words and rhythms. His career flourished in the 1920s, but the Depression caused him to consider the benefits of socialism and communism. He traveled to the Soviet Union and returned committed to the ideals of social reform and racial justice. Hughes' poetry expresses the strongest hopes and frustrations of African Americans in the 20th century. Part of the Black Americans of Achievement Video Collection that celebrates the most influential African Americans in history.

Only available in the US.
