Langston Hughes and the Scottsboro Boys Poetic Words For Injustice
Justice Still Not On America's Mainline For Black America
Today is the 89th anniversary of the beginning of the false imprisonments of the Scottsboro Boys. One of the voices of agitation in the black community during these turbulent times in Jim Crow America was Langston Hughes. Paying homage to both Langston Hughes as well as the Scottsboro Boys on my blog brings me to reading 4 poems written by ancestor Hughes about Scottsboro, Alabama and the Scottsboro Boys. I hope you enjoy my readings.
