The Langston Hughes Society (LHS)
Named in honor of the first African American to make his living solely by his pen, the Langston Hughes Society is a national association of scholars, teachers, creative and performing artists, students, and lay persons who seek to increase awareness and appreciation of Langston Hughes (1 Feb. 1902–22 May 1967) by promoting scholarship and creative achievement. In honor of his legacy and his commitment to encouraging young writers, the Langston Hughes Society remains dedicated to supporting writers today.
The Langston Hughes Review (ISSN: 0737-0555), founded in 1982, is the official publication
of the Langston Hughes Society. Under the editorship of Dr. Tony Bolden, the LHR returned to print in 2019.
