        Harlem

        "What happens to a dream deferred?" Langston Hughes question calls former President Bill Clinton, pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, poet Sonia Sanchez, and students from the Harlem Children's Zone to interpret Hughes' most iconic poem, "Harlem," in this video excerpted from Poetry in America. Together with host Elisa New, the President and other guests explore the poem's rhythms and rhymes, interpret its images, and discuss its enduring call for justice. This resource is part of the Poetry in America Collection.
