The Black Blogger Celebrates May 22 “Claude McKay and Langston Hughes”

Just give me 20 minutes of your time to celebrate some of the magnificent works of Claude McKay and Langston Hughes who passed on to eternity on this day in 1948, Claude McKay, and in 1967, Langston Hughes. Only 19 years separated their passing but both men bought magic and messages to their verses.

The Black Blogger will read a dozen or so poems that keep should our consciousness alive in black communities during a period of racial strife in America. You have to comprehend that although decades may have passed many of the issues that suppressed our growth still remains. You must be able to read in order to be blessed to comprehend the greatness of both men. Whose words still are relevant​ to our current condition in this nation. America was never ever America to me still is a phrase that embodies black life in this nation in 2020.
