The African American Poets: Brooks and Hughes

Partner(s): Farah Jasmine Griffin - Arts and Sciences

The African American Poets: Brooks and Hughes wiki was deployed in Professor Farah Griffin's Spring 2006 undergraduate course, African American Literature, which explores the development of black writing in the United States since the Harlem Renaissance. Within the collaborative website, students conduct both a textual analysis of poems by Langston Hughes and Gwendolyn Brooks by selecting key sections, phrases, and words of the works to annotate. Students also author and categorize relevant discourse, such as the cultural context, social significance, and relationship of the texts to other literary movements.
