Your Daily Vid: Langston Hughes, Cab Calloway

Posted by John Stoehr on Thu, Dec 6, 2007 at 9:37 AM

Here's a wonderful example of the artistic potential of the internet. Four Season Productions combines music, documentary footage, and poetry that achieves a kind of power none of the three media could accomplish by themselves. This video below features footage of Cab Calloway dancing to the melodic musings of Langston Hughes, a superb poet and historian of African-American cultural heritage. I'll look into this organization and report what I find later. Meanwhile, enjoy.
