10 Poems by Langston Hughes on the Poetry Foundation site

This year, Poetry celebrates 100 years. To go along with their own efforts to acknowledge a century's worth of work, I'll highlight the presence of African American poets who published in the magazine over the years.

I have previously provided links to Hughes poems that appeared in Poetry. Today, I provide links to 10 Hughes poems that I have enjoyed that appear on the Poetry Foundation site.
• "I, Too
• "The Weary Blues"
• "Mother to Son"
• "The Negro Speaks of Rivers"
• "Harlem"
• "Theme for English B"
• "Madam’s Past History"
• "50-50"
• "Morning After"
• "April Rain Song"
