Langston Hughes was a man far ahead of his time, notes actress, author, and playwright Bonnie Greer—but his actions were often unpredictable and contradictory, and he refused classification. Hughes campaigned tirelessly for civil rights, for example, yet he also testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee, which was perceived by many as a baseless witch-hunt. Rather than ignoring or excusing these contradictions, Greer confronts them in this biography, painting an indelible portrait of a man caught up in strange and complex times.
