Lecture: "A Dream Deferred: African American Liberation Struggles and the Poetic Visions of Langston Hughes"

Dr. MaryLouise Patterson is a pediatrician living in New York City. She and her childhood friend, Evelyn Louise Crawford, co-edited Letters from Langston: From the Harlem Renaissance to the Red Scare and Beyond (University of California Press, 2016), a book of letters exchanged over 40 years between their parents, political activists, and the legendary African American poet/novelist/playwright/activist, Langston Hughes (1901-67).
