Day 537

My soul has grown deep like the rivers

June 19th, 2013

Here at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the ashes of Langston Hughes are interred beneath this cosmogram inscribed with lines from Hughes's "The Negro Speaks of Rivers".

    Unusual for you to post a photo taken indoors! I was not familiar with the work cosmogram. Good to know.

  2. Gigi says:

    Oh, I didn’t notice this, I must have walked over his ashes when I was there.
