Langston Hughes’s poems, dating from the Harlem Renaissance through the 1960’s, continue to resonate today. These powerful, poignant and often amusing works are read out loud by members of the community and accompanied by the Becky Bass Trio. Coordinated by the Langston Hughes Community Poetry Reading Committee. Due to COVID 19 restrictions refreshments will NOT be served.
