Langston Tee

Langston Tee


“An artist must be free to choose what he does, certainly, but he must also never be afraid to do what he might choose.” —Langston Hughes

The “Langston” tee is named after poet, playwright, novelist, and activist, Langston Hughes (February 1, 1902 – May 22, 1967). Common themes in Hughes’ work include racism, The American Dream, aspiration, self-actualization, and blues and jazz music. Hughes was a prominent figure of New York City’s Harlem Renaissance, “the cultural, social, and artistic explosion that took place in Harlem between the end of World War I and the middle of the 1930s. During this period Harlem was a cultural center, drawing black writers, artists, musicians, photographers, poets, and scholars. Many had come from the South, fleeing its oppressive caste system in order to find a place where they could freely express their talents...More than a literary movement, [the Harlem Renaissance] involved racial pride, fueled in part by the militancy of the “New Negro” demanding civil and political rights.”
