EVENT: An Evening with Langston Hughes

Thursday, February 16, 2023

Event: An Evening with Langston Hughes February 16, 2023 at 7:30pm Langston Hughes was a poet who utilized the American language, music, slang and religious views to educate the world about African American lifestyles during the Harlem Renaissance. His jazz poetry depicted the "low-life", or the real life experiences of blacks in the lower social-economic strata. His criticisms focused on the divisions, and prejudices, based on skin color within the black community. Actor Keith Henley’s portrayal deals with the issue of how to be oneself, and encourages all to joy in the knowledge that “I too have a song to sing” and to ask the question “why not me?” Reservations Essential.
