The Langston Hughes Project is a multimedia concert of Langston Hughes' kaleidoscopic jazz poem suite. "Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz" is Hughes' homage in verse to the struggle for artistic and social freedom at home and abroad at the beginning of the 1960s. This concert links Hughes' poetry and music to topical images of "Ask Your Mama's" people, places, events and the works of visual artists with whom Hughes collaborated.

This event is presented with the generous support of a Roser Mini-Grant.
