THE STORY OF THE BLUES – LANGSTON HUGHES
Lamont Jack Pearley
As you all know, I am a big advocate that the Blues, African American Literature and it’s heritage is one and the same..The Blues birthed the Sterling Brown’s and the Zora Neale Hurston’s, of the world…as well as their literature describing the culture of the Blues, which gave it another birth.
With that said, I wish to share a recording By Langston Hughes, which I feel gives an accurate depiction of the Blues. Voiced by Langston himself.
