Task One: Read Langston Hughes, “When the Negro was in Vogue,” “The Weary Blues,” “Good Morning,” “Harlem,” “Juke Box Love Song,” “Subway Rush Hour,” Claude McKay, “A Song of the Moon,”“The Tropics in New York,” and “The City’s Love;”  Zora Neale Hurston, “Story in Harlem Slang.”

Task Two: Watch Langston Hughes reading  “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” and “The Weary Blues.”

Task Three: Submit your short Night at the Museum video by uploading your video to YouTube or Vimeo (both are free accounts), creating a new post with the category “Museum Video,” and then paste the URL of the video into your post. Be sure to identify all the members of our class who worked on the video together in the body of the post above or below the video (only 1 person per group needs to submit). The video should be embedded directly into the post, not linked.

Hint: if you want, you can make your video “unlisted” when you upload it to YouTube, which means that people won’t find it in searches.

Your can use the Smarthistory videos that you saw on IDEA day back in August as a model, examples of which can be seen below:
