Black History Month ... and the birthday of Langston Hughes

Today marks the inauguration of Black History Month. It is also, fortuitously, the birthday of the African American poet, social activist, novelist, playwright, and columnist, Langston Hughes (February 1, 1902 – May 22, 1967). Our trifecta is complete with a link to a new paper (posted today!) by Alfred Brophy on SSRN: “Black Power in a Prison Library.”
