    In July, my family and I went on a 10-day trip to Ireland. We flew into Dublin and, using a rental car, we drove southwest until we reached the Beara Peninsula, went north to an area near Galway, and finally made our way back east to Dublin. Along the way we encountered many beautiful sights and terrains,...

    To many, Langston Hughes was the epitome of the Civil Rights fight for freedom. Through his pen, Hughes communicated the struggle of being an African-American, constantly weighed down by stereotypes and unwarranted hatred. "The Black Clown," one of his poems, embodies his legacy: his steadfast be...
