Kacey Cooper (MA candidate in Rhetoric and Composition) organized a public event to celebrate the anniversary of poet Langston Hughes’s 1949 trip to Wilson. Her “Hughes in Wilson, NC” was both previewed and covered extensively by The Wilson Times. The event covered all the locations Hughes visited and featured poetry readings, musical performances, and historical presentations from Cooper as well as Jason Miller, local librarians, and former US Congressman G.K. Butterfield.
