About the author(s): Langston Hughes was born in 1 February 1902
Langston Hughes(1902-1967)Writer, editor, lecturerLangston Hughes achieved fame as a poet during the burgeoning of the arts known as the Harlem Renaissance, but those who label him a Harlem Renaissance poet have restricted his fame to only one genre and decade. In addition to his work as a poet, Hughes was a novelist, columnist, playwright, and essayist, and though he is most closely associated with Harlem, his world travels influenced his writing in a profound way. Langston Hughes followed the example of Paul Laurence Dunbar, one of his early poetic influences, to become the second African American to earn a living as a writer. His long and distinguished career produced volumes of diverse genres and inspired the work of countless other African American writers.--From Gale Cengage Learning Free resources
