Description:

An analysis of the poems of Langston Hughes that demonstrates how racism and prejudice against Blacks often evolved into literary expression in order to retain a voice, culture and dignity distinctly their own.

From the Paper:

"Despite an increase in tolerance toward African Americans and increased opportunities since the end of slavery, Joseph F Healey maintains in "Race, Ethnicity, Gender and Class" that the huge majority of African Americans have very limited access to quality education, few political rights, few occupational choices and few vehicles for expressing their views, grievances and concerns. The historical and systematic prejudice and discrimination African Americans have been subjected to in American society actually helped foster creative outlets for expression in many Blacks."
