Langston Hughes

This week’s column celebrates the creative mind of Black poet Langston Hughes.

It includes these lines from “Call to Creation”:

“Listen! Futile beauty-makers —

Work for awhile with the pattern-breakers!

Come for a march with the new-world-makers:

Let beauty be!”

“Langston Hughes, “In spite of all, Life must not cease””
