Annual Langston Hughes Community Poetry Reading
1 – 3:30 pm, Metcalf Auditorium
Langston Hughes’s poems, dating from the Harlem Renaissance through the 1960s, continue to resonate today. These powerful, poignant and often amusing works are read aloud by members of the community and leaders of diverse backgrounds, including educators, corporate executives, writers, musicians and artists, accompanied by the Daniel Ian Smith Jazz Trio. This annual event has been celebrated 19 years.
Coordinated by Anne Edmonds Clanton. Join us for a reception following the event.
