Sterling Brown and Langston Hughes

Two of the 20th century’s most influential poets representing the African-American voice are captured here reciting their own short stories and poetry. From the lyrical, lulling rhythms of Brown’s poem, "Break of Day," to longer, narrative, entertaining stories such as Hughes’ "Feet Live their Own Life," this collection of original recordings provides a compelling mix of literature and performance.
