LANGSTON HUGHES
Hughes handwrote, signed and dated this letter on his personalized stationery in 1962. In it, he apologizes to Bernard Baker about not sending him an autograph and photo of himself because he'd been too busy travelling "every-which-a-where".
Autograph letter signed "Langston Hughes" in blue ink. 1 page, 5¼x8¼, on Hughes' personalized stationery. June 6, 1962. Addressed to Bernard Baker. In full: "Dear Bernard Baker: Travelling about so much the last few years - Africa twice and every-which-a-where, I don't believe I ever sent you the autograph and photo you request-ed. Here it is - gladly. [not included] Sincerely". Hughes (1902-1967, born James Mercer Langston Hughes in Joplin, Missouri) captured the Black experience in jazz and blues songs and 30 plays and librettos, including Mulatto (1935), Soul Gone Home (1937) and Black Nativity (1961). His other works include the poem "The Weary Blues" (1926), the novel Not Without Laughter (1930) and two autobiographies: The Big Sea (1940) and I Wonder as I Wander (1956). In 1960, the NAACP awarded the Springarn Medal to Hughes, naming him "Poet-laureate of the Negro Race". In April 1961, Hughes, who devoted 40 years to the advancement of his race, was elected to the prestigious National Institute of Arts and Letters. Lightly toned and creased. Folded once and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
