The Oak Bluffs Library brings the Harlem Renaissance to light with a special exhibit of an original manuscript by Langston Hughes. His poem Cubes is now on exhibit in three drafts and the final version.
Viewers will be able to see Mr. Hughes’s changes to his text as they read his poem, which highlights the racial and economic exploitation he encountered while traveling abroad extensively.
The exhibit is located in the upper lobby of the library and is available from the private collection of Kathleen and Gil Rodriguez of Connecticut. The exhibit continues through August 17.
