  • History: This Black Heritage Series stamp sheet features the portrait of American poet Langston Hughes (February 1, 1902 - May 22, 1967). Best known as the leader of the Harlem Renaissance, Hughes was one of the innovators of the art form known as jazz poetry.  After attending Columbia University to the dismay of his father,  he produced his  first piece of work. It also became his signature poem, The Negro Speaks of Rivers.  His poem was published in The Crisis, the official publication of the NAACP, in 1921.  Langston Hughes mostly wrote about the lives of the working-class African American, and unlike many of his contemporaries, he stressed a theme of "black is beautiful" in his novels and poems.  On May 22, 1967, Langston Hughes died from complications of an abdominal surgery he had due to his prostate cancer.  His ashes are planted beneath the floor in the foyer of an auditorium named after Hughes in the Arthur Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem.
