Shakespeare in Harlem

To commemorate what would have been his 110th birthday, poets Delores Kendrick and Evie Shockley will celebrate the legacy of American poet Langston Hughes by reading selections from his work and discussing his influence on their own writing on Wednesday February 1 at 12 noon in the Whittall Pavillion in the Thomas Jefferson Building at the Library of Congress.  Hailed as one of the premier voices and figures of the Harlem Renaissance, Hughes realized an extraordinary career as a writer, advocate and world influencer. The Jefferson Building is located at 10 First Street SE near the Capitol South Metro stop.
