Langston Hughes is very well known for his African American writing in his poetry. I think the poetry that was assigned for us to read was pretty straight forward and easy to read. One of my favorites would be "The Weary Blues" it seems as though the man that is playing the piano is sad about something going on in his life. It talks about how he plays this piano underneath a spot light and he is swaying back and forth to a "mellow croon". It talks about how his sway was so mellow and gentle, that you can just tell that he is a easy going, "mellow" person himself.
