"This is the first collection of poems on Negro subjects that Langston Hughes has made since "Shakespeare in Harlem.".Here the man Carl Van Vechten called, "the Negro Poet Laureate" brings together happy lyrics, dirges, dramatic coliloquies, and love songs that are the distillation of a rich human understanding."

With slight bumping to the corners and to the top of the rear panel. In the original dustjacket which has the price of "$2.75 net" printed in red at the top of the inside front flap. The front panel is printed in red with yellow and white lettering, and it is very clean and bright with some light chipping along the bottom edge.
