Langston Hughes was born on 1st February 1902 in Joplin, Missouri. He was known as a poet, playwright, novelist and columnist. His best known work is considered to be his jazz poetry. His father was James Nathaniel and his mother was Mercer Langston.

The first problem that Langston faced was during his early years. His father left his mother and all of them and went to Cuba. His mother had to travel for work purpose so he was raised by his maternal grandmother. When his grandmother died, he had to live with some family friends for two years. He did not have a happy childhood which was later translated into his poetry.

He was also targeted on the basis of his race as he was an African American in his school and college days.
