Share

February 9, 2013

Program Locations:

This program is made possible by the Friends of Webster.

What better way to celebrate Black History Month than a one-hour-and-twenty-minute, one-person dramatic rendition of Langston Hughes poems and short stories. Actor and writer David Mills performance takes the audience on an odyssey spanning five decades - from the 1920s through the 1960s of Hughes writings.

The show explores Hughes penchant for both humor and patos. Mills brings Hughes to life.
