THREE POETS OF THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE Langston Hughes, Georgia Douglas Johnson, and Countee Cullen

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kevin Kenerly, Robin Miles, Ron Butler

Poetry & Drama • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

In this inspiring anthology of more than 250 poems from the 1920s high-water mark of the Harlem Renaissance, narrator Ron Butler accentuates the classical tones and themes of Countee Cullen. Robin Miles finds the warmth and intelligence in Georgia Douglas Johnson's best work. And Kevin Kenerly captures Langston Hughes's distinct groundbreaking jazz rhythms. Quick, focused, insightful--pieces such as Hughes's "Weary Blues" and "The Negro Speaks of Rivers," Johnson's "Tears and Kisses," and Cullen's "Uncle Jim" created the sound of African American artists staking their claim to the American Dream. As performed by these fine narrators, the poems sound as fresh, fabulous, and necessary as they did 100 years ago. A wonderful introduction to a vital literary world. B.P.
