Hughes, Langston

Langston Hughes (1902-1967) was an American author. He wrote works in all forms, including plays, poetry, and short pieces called sketches.

He was born in Joplin, Missouri. He became best known for his poetry and his sketches about an outspoken, emotional African American man called “Simple.” Simple gives his opinions on issues of the day. Hughes used Simple to show what an intelligent but uneducated African American man might say.

In his poetry, Hughes wrote proudly about African American people. He used rhythms of African American music in his poetry. His success probably inspired other African American poets to experiment with such rhythms in their poetry.

All About

Rosa Parks

In 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, a black woman named Rosa Parks was arrested for not giving a white man her seat on the bus, as required by segregation laws. The result: Black people in the city stayed off the buses for 382 days, until the law was struck down by the Supreme court. This boycott, led by Martin Luther King Jr., started the U.S. Civil Rights Movement.

The Medal of Honor

The Medal of Honor is given by the United States

Government for bravery in war against an enemy. The first medals were awarded in 1863. Since that

time, nearly 3,400 people have received the award
