The Daily Kansan: Langston Hughes documentary created by University professors receives $50,000 fund

Last summer, Randal Jelks, a professor of African-American Studies, sat down with a group of scholars on the life of Langston Hughes. Hughes was a key voice of the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s. They planned out a new documentary idea about the life and writings on Hughes. The discussion included the decision to search for an endowment grant that would fund their movie, “I, Too, Sing America: Langston Hughes Unfurled, A Doc Film.”
