All About The Amazing Poet, Langston Hughes
Langston Hughes' Accomplishments
The most interesting I learned about Langston Hughes was that his funeral was filled with jazz and blues music. One quote he said was, “An artist must be free to choose what he does, certainly, but he must also never be afraid to do what he might choose.”
Langston was born February 1, 1902, Joplin, MO.
His parents split up after his birth and he moved to several cites before settling in Cleveland, OH.
Hughes died May 22, 1967, New York, NY
Langston Hughes is a really good poet, playwright, and novelist. Some of his characteristics are creative and inspiring. Creative because he has three creative jobs, poet, playwright, and novelist. Inspiring because he has inspired regular people to not stop and never give up on your dreams.
