Langston Hughes Animated by Kids

In the U.S. and Canada we celebrate Black History month in February (while observed in October in the U.K., Ireland, and the Netherlands.) It is a way to remember important people and events in the history of the African diaspora.

In 2006, I worked with the kids at Brooklyn P.S. 268 in a workshop about the Harlem Renaissance. The students animated the poems of Langston Hughes using original recordings of the poet, their own drawings, and pantings by William H. Johnson.
