Standing on the Steps of Langston Hughes’ House in Harlem

Jubilee has a tradition of celebrating “Harlem Renaissance Week”. Last year the fifth and sixth grade class spent the day in Harlem. They visited the Apollo, the Schomburg Center for Black Culture and many other landmarks associated with the Harlem Renaissance. At Langston Hughes’ house they recited “The Negro Speaks of Rivers”. Bethany, a fifth grade student, later wrote: “The beauty of Harlem is being able to see it. To see history walk down the street. One day, some day, the truth will come out. We will share the true life of history.”
