Abstract:

"All of the poems in My Conversation with Langston Hughes follow the same theme: the reaction to social injustice that permeates the everyday experiences of African Americans as they navigate life in the inner cities. The city of Chicago was the model that was imagined for each of the poems but it could just as well have been any American inner city with a significant black population. The poems speak to the suffering and hardship at the hands of prejudice but also to the hopes and dreams of a resilient people who have a such unique history in the ongoing story of America. The composer of all of the poems is imagined as a young black male who speaks his truth in the language of the streets he knows so well."--Page 4 of cover.
