Black Starz! will premiere a documentary about writer Langston Hughes in
September.

Hughes' Dream Harlem, commemorating his centenary, will premiere on the
premium multiplex as part of its 'The Heritage' programming initiative, which
features films and documentaries taking a historical look at the contributions
of African Americans.

Shot on location in Harlem, the documentary will include anecdotes from
writers, poets and actors about Hughes' literary legacy. Actor Ossie Davis will
narrate the film.

Black Starz! announced that it will support the movie with a marketing
campaign reaching out to historically black colleges and high
schools.
