MULTIMEDIA AND PRESS

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT
Langston Hughes was an American poet, novelist, and playwright whose African American themes made him a primary contributor to the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s. He wrote with the gifted ear of a poet, but in a language that seemed to spring organically from within black culture, infused with notes from Africa, the Caribbean, Mexico and the American South. His prolific body of work, including Montage of a Dream Deferred, Black Nativity and the co-edited anthology The Book of Negro Folklore, celebrates the vitality, the creativity, and the resilience of black people in the United States.
