1:08 – Fund Drive Special: Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes was a poet, novelist, playwright, activist, and a columnist for the Chicago Defender during the rise of the civil rights movement. He was a luminary of the Harlem renaissance; someone who stood out for writing poetry for the people, rather than for poets and scholars and critics. This is a recording made by KFPA, when Hughes spoke at UC Berkeley, on December 10, 1958.
