Letters from Langston: From the Harlem Renaissance to the Red Scare and Beyond
Evelyn Louise Crawford and MaryLouise Patterson (Eds.)
MaryLouise Patterson’s parents enjoyed a bond with Langston Hughes for decades. Abiding friendships were shared with co-editor Evelyn Louise Crawford’s mother and father, and Hughes was a frequent guest in the homes of the two families, and was like an uncle to Evelyn Louise and MaryLouise. This collection shows a steadfast camaraderie, founded on burgeoning intellectual and political curiosity, mostly focused on race and liberation.
