James Mercer Langston Hughes (1902 – 1967) was an American poet, social activist, novelist, playwright, and columnist. He created jazz poetry and was the leader of the Harlem Renaissance. His signature poem “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” was first pulbished in The Crisis in 1921 and later became a part of his first book of poetry The Weary Blues (1926). In his work, Hughes tried to depict the real lives of working-class African Americans in the lower social-economic class. He protested racial stereotypes and wanted to encourage pride in diverse black folk culture and aesthetics.
