Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes reads one of his most famous poems, from The Weary Blues, and explains how he came to write it. Evoked in a poetical way, this description of the Mississippi River provides a new approach to slavery, a theme with which students are already familiar.
These activities are aimed at upper-intermediate students (last two years of secondary school). It is therefore taken for granted that they have a few notions about the “triangle trade” and slavery.
