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, accompanied by the Daniel Ian Smith Jazz Trio.
Coordinated by the Langston Hughes Community Poetry Reading Committee. This program made possible through a grant from the Rhode Island Committee for the Humanities, an independent state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and with support from the City of Providence Department of Art, Culture + Tourism.
Free admission. Refreshments following the reading.
