Kasia's immediate response to news of the earthquake in Haiti.
Langston Hughes was an American novelist, playwright, short story writer, and columnist. He was one of the earliest innovators of the literary art form dubbed "jazz poetry". In the late spring of 1932 he visited Haiti for his only visit there. He spent about three months in Port-au-Prince and Cap Haitien. In Cap Haitien he scandalized the hotel manager where he stayed by going out barefoot to meet and talk with fishermen along the water front in Okap.
Whilst leaving Haiti virtually penniless, he had to go via Port-au-Prince on a ship to Cuba. He had one person he wanted to visit: Jacques Roumain, then a minister in the Haitian government, and already a famous author whom Hughes respected a great deal.
