On Monday, February 3rd at 7 p.m., Washington Township Public Library welcomes actor Keith Henley, of the American Historical Theatre, for the one-man show "Langston Hughes: I Too…Have a Song to Sing." Hughes was a poet who utilized the American language, music, slang and religious views to educate the world about African American lifestyles during the Harlem Renaissance. His jazz poetry depicted the "low-life", or the real life experiences of blacks in the lower social-economic strata. His criticisms focused on the divisions, and prejudices, based on skin color within the black community. Henley's portrayal deals with the issue of how to be oneself, and encourages all to joy in the knowledge that "I too have a song to sing" and to ask the question "why not me?" This program has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH).
