Few American artists loom larger than Langston Hughes. He wrote novels, plays, short stories, films, librettos, children’s verse, newspaper columns, translations, and memoirs, and edited several important anthologies. But most of all, he remained a poet. From “Dreams” to “Let America Be America Again,” he explored social conscience and class difference with lyric beauty and music.

As part of its work to change the narrative about race in America, the Equal Justice Institute (EJI) extensively researched the period between the Civil War and World War II, when more than 4,000 African Americans were lynched in this country. EJI published its findings in the report Lynching in America: Confronting the Legacy of Racial Terror. With support from Google, EJI has created Lynching in America, a freedigital interactive experience inspired by the original report.
