Please join us via Zoom on Thursday, November 5 at 12:30 PM. Larry Lowenthal from Sage Educational Services presents, “Langston Hughes and the Harlem Renaissance”. The works of Langston Hughes reflect the lives of African Americans and celebrates the richness of black American culture. From the Harlem renaissance to black power, Langston Hughes spoke to the hopes, dreams, passions, agonies and triumphs of the African American community. Prolific in his production of poems, essays, plays, short stories and novels, Hughes remains today, 53 years after his death, one of the most celebrated but one of the most controversial of all-American poets. Included in the Zoom presentation will be a full analysis of Hughes impact on the Harlem renaissance, the intellectual, social and artistic explosion that centered in Manhattan in the 1920’s and still resonates with tremendous cultural authority in black American life today.  Please email Sharon Wilkes at [email protected],ma.us to register; a reminder email will be sent out a day before the event.
