文艺复兴人

蓝斯顿休斯的作品影响了许许多多的人,年轻作家及艺术家都以他为师。非裔美国人在其查找了他们曾经有过的经历及文化的声音(一个前所未有的声音)。许多来自于不同种族的艺术家都受到了他的启发,开始书写、绘制、演出及吟唱。如图中的素描一般,有些人甚至将他们的作品献给休斯。

艺术如何影响您的生活?您曾读过、看过或听过任何让您回想起自身生活方式或最近发生事件的作品吗?


Langston Hughes influenced many other people with his art -- young writers and artists looked up to him. African Americans found in him a voice for their own experiences and culture -- a voice that hadn't been widely heard until then. He inspired many other artists of all races to write, draw, play, and sing. Some even dedicated their work to Hughes, as you can see in the drawing here.

How does art touch your life? Have you ever read, watched, or listened to something that reminded you of the way you live or of something that has happened to you?
