Since Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, some scholars have privately suspected that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “dream” was connected to Langston Hughes’s poetry. Drawing on archival materials, including notes, correspondence, marginalia, and a newly uncovered audio tape, W. Jason Miller provides a completely original and compelling argument that Hughes’s influence on King’s rhetoric was, in fact, evident in more than just the one famous speech. Miller is associate professor of English at North Carolina State and the author of Langston Hughes and American Lynching Culture. Free and open to the public. This program is co-presented by the NCSU Libraries and the African American Cultural Center.
