In these acrid and poignant stories, Hughes depicted black people colliding--sometimes humorously, more often tragically--with whites in the 1920s and '30s.

Synopsis:

The classic collection of stories, including "Cora Unashamed", in which the bond between an African-American maid and the young daughter of her white employers transcends prejudice and tragedy during the Depression. Emmy-nominated actress Regina Taylor and Tony Award winner Cherry Jones star.

Stacia V, October 23, 2014 (view all comments by Stacia V)
Langston Hughes has an easy, conversational manner, but the man doesn't pull any punches. Ouch. And Wow. Written about 80 years ago, but just as on target today about race, about people, about society. Powerful writing. Powerful book. Highly recommended.
