Langston Hughes' Birthday

Maya Angelou and Langston Hughes

It never ceases to amaze me that someone who is still living knew Langston Hughes: The People's Poet!

Maya Angelou knew Langston Hughes! My, My, My....

Friday night I stood in line, in the freezing cold, for quite a long time, in order to see Johnnetta Cole, director of the National Museum of African Art, have a discussion with Maya Angelou. (Oh! What a treat!)

During the question and answer time, someone got up and stated that Friday, February 1st was Langston Hughes' birthday.

Oh My! How did I miss that?

This entire blog is written in the spirit of Langston and his autobiography The Big Sea......

Sooooo, Happy Belated Birthday Langston!

I will leave you with Langston Hughes reciting one of my favorite poems that was written by him: "The Negro Speaks of Rivers."

Let's Do this People!
