A YEAR'S WORTH OF READING: John Edgar Tidwell, associate professor of English, wrapped up work on three book projects this year. "Montage of a Dream: The Art and Life of Langston Hughes" is a comprehensive reassessment of Hughes. Tidwell co-edited the book and contributed an essay on the thorny discussion of Hughes' sexual orientation. "Writings of Frank Marshall Davis, A Voice of the Black Press" covers Davis' 30 years as a journalist and his work on topics such as the blues, democracy and Hawaiian life and culture. In "A Negro Looks at the South," Tidwell edited materials left behind by Sterling A. Brown concerning black life in the South. In a time when segregation was the rule, Brown sought to document the experiences of Southern Blacks.
