Langston Hughes was the first African American to fully support himself through his writing. He made enough money to buy a really nice house in Chicago back in the day. Plus he’s one of my all-time favorite poets.. Here’s one of his most well known poems…

Dream Variations

To fling my arms wide
In some place of the sun,
To whirl and to dance
Till the white day is done.
Then rest at cool evening
Beneath a tall tree
While night comes on gently,
Dark like me—
That is my dream!

To fling my arms wide
In the face of the sun,
Dance! Whirl! Whirl!
Till the quick day is done.
Rest at pale evening . . .
A tall, slim tree . . .
Night coming tenderly
Black like me.

~Langston Hughes

~Langston Hughes

He’s awesome. His work totally reflects the mood of the Harlem Renaissance and that whole vibe.

Sometimes he’s like bee- bop boppity bop

and mixes that kinda stuff in there.

His work is amazing.

He used to write other things besides poems, too.

People, I think , used to hire him to write plays and screenplays and other stuff like that.

So, I think he did a lot of commissions that way.

He was well known around Chicago back in the day.

And he did really good for himself.

He made himself an example, not a statistic.

Here’s a link to a site that explains why the MLK commercial by Ram to sell trucks was really a twisting of King’s words:

Using a civil rights hero to sell cars in a Super Bowl commercial may seem absurd on its face, but it’s particularly ridiculous when said civil rights icon actually spoke out against car commercials.
