Langston Hughes Society (LHS)

Join the Langston Hughes Society

Founded in 1981, the Langston Hughes Society (LHS) was the first scholarly association named in honor of an African American writer. The LHS is a national association of scholars, teachers, creative and performing artists, students, and lay persons who seek to increase awareness and appreciation of Langston Hughes (1 February 1902 – 22 May 1967), the first African-American writer to make his living solely by his pen.
