Hughes reads 19 of his greatest poems. "Open your ears and your heart . . . Langston will walk right in and do the rest."--Ossie Davis.
Here, in his own words, Langston Hughes shares the life experiences that set him on the path to become one of America's greatest poets. Interspersed between his vibrant, masterful works, Hughes describes the sights, sounds, and memories of mid-century America, illuminating many events he experienced growing up black in an openly segregated and prejudiced society. By including his witty, entertaining, and wonderfully generous commentary, this recording provides a rare glimpse at the world behind Hughes's remarkably evocative oeuvre and adds even greater resonance to the emotional depth and sweeping vision of his excellent poetry.
