In Praise of Langston Hughes

The writings of American poet Langston Hughes reach across generations, cultures and languages. Celebration of what would have been his 100th birthday Friday -- and a granddaughter's discovery of Hughes' work in an elementary school textbook -- inspired this essay for Morning Edition by NPR's Vertamae Grosvenor.
