Perhaps the mission of an artist is to interpret beauty to people – the beauty within themselves.
More Langston Hughes quotes :
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.Langston Hughes
We younger Negro artists who create now intend to express our individual dark-skinned selves without fear or shame. If white people are pleased, we are glad. If they are not, it doesn't matter. We know we are beautiful. And ugly too.Langston Hughes
