THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF
LANGSTON HUGHES SOCIETY
Named in honor of the first African American to make his living solely by his pen, the Langston Hughes Society (LHS) 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 undying commitment to encouraging young writers of his time, the Langston Hughes Society remains dedicated to supporting writers today.
The Langston Hughes Review (ISSN: 0737-0555), under the editorship of Dr. Tony Bolden, was founded in 1982; it is the official publication of the Langston Hughes Society.
