EDUCATION AND WORK
NEGATIVES FOR HUGHES
"A famous poet?" "No way that could possibly happen for you Langston Hughes!!!"
Unfortunately, Langston Hughes did not have a very good support system. Even though we all may have been talked bad about, but to be discouraged by your own father has to be challenging. Langston's father (James Nathaniel Hughes) told him that there was no possible way he become the famous poet he is today. Not only did his father tried to refocus his mind on becoming a poet, many others also doubted Hughes. All the negative talk about him has a huge role to play in Langston becoming the man he will always be remembered as still yet today.
