Margaret Walker Reads Margaret Walker and Langston Hughes

Margaret Walker Reads Margaret Walker and Langston Hughes

Margaret Walker was one of the most respected poets not only in the African American community but in America at large. Reading selections from her most acclaimed collection of poetry “For My People,” Walker’s poetry expresses a collective historical identity in poems such as “Big John Henry” and “Stagolee.” Walker was heavily influenced by the poetry of Langston Hughes and it is thus fitting that she recites his poetry from Hughes’ “Madam” series.
