Still image from Langston Hughes: The Dream Keeper

Biographers, friends, critics, and Hughes himself offer commentary on his life and work as a premier African American poet and writer. Kansas-born Hughes was an influential voice for and about his race from the 1920s-1960s. Trips to Africa, Russia, and Spain enlarged his understanding of the universality of the beauty, dignity, and heritage of blacks in America. Performances of his work illustrate both his range and depth.
