English faculty, Shantel Hubert, is presenting, The Intersection Between the Veiled and the Masked: A Tribute to Langston Hughes, a virtual program held on February 21 through the Michener Museum in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Through original musical performances, poetry, and lecture, Shantel will explore the playwright, poet, and author’s work in connection with the current social issues.
“During these especially challenging times, it is important to share how artists—especially writers of the Harlem Renaissance—used their works as a vehicle for community upliftment, connection, and social change,” said Shantel.
Shantel will share the program with the George School community during assembly on Friday, January 15. Following the assembly presentation, she will challenge the community to commit a poem to memory. She plans for students and Advisors to participate during collection and hopes that the community at large will also take part.
“Students will have an opportunity to read or recite their works virtually during the Michener Museum performance,” said Shantel. “Additionally, the English Department will be dedicating a Langston Hughes Tribute Award to participants who are most effective in creatively sharing their poetry recitation.”
