Langston Hughes was an outstanding poet. His life story is just as interesting as the work he produced. I take inspiration from this poem, and it is one of only a small handful I can recite by heart. Don't forget, Thursday is #WorldPoetryDay - Many people who didn't like poetry in school find it was the way it was taught and not poetry that they disliked to begin with. ☺

This is my Well-loved copy of Langston Hughes poems. My grandma gave it to me for my 14th birthday. It is actually all yellowed and mellowed and has that heavenly old-book smell. #BlackHistory #riotgrams
Reading Hughes for the first time and really enjoying it. I took a bunch of those internet quizzes, like "Who is your literary soul mate?" etc type stuff, and always got Langston Hughes. I figured maybe I should read his work! I'm glad I did.
