HARLEM RENAISSANCE: LANGSTON HUGHES
Langston Hughes’ Harlem Home Gets Its Own Renaissance — As An Art Center. I, Too, Arts Collective, a nonprofit group raised funds to lease Hughes’ brownstone, now a national landmark, as an arts center, preserve #LangstonsLegacy and prevent one more high-end co-op. Learn more here.

A poet, novelist, playwright and social activist, Langston Hughes was a leader of the Harlem Renaissance in New York City during the 1920s and ’30s, and he was an innovator of the “jazz poetry” literary art form.

Andrew Oyé’s AMERICAN ART KILLERS is a generation-defining novel about a crew of artists on a journey to self-discovery and a mysterious tale about the power of art, music and madness.

Like classic, generation-defining novels of eras past, American Art Killers: Con Artists, Call Girls and Jazz Junkies accents a moment in contemporary life with keen force. A stirring portrait of artists and warriors, lovers and fighters, liars and legends, American Art Killers is a literary character study of the artist’s mind and soul. And lurking behind this intimate journey to self-discovery is a haunting, sweaty tale of lust, lunacy and liberation.
