Looking for Langston

That's the title of an Isaac Julien film from the 1980s. It's also the title of this post. Flicking through this fortnight's LRB, as I do, I saw this snippet from Langston Hughes's autobiography The Big Sea:
"ordinary Negroes hadn't heard of the Harlem Renaissance. And if they had, it hadn't raised their wages any."
