SACRAMENTO -- Retired state Sen. Bill Greene (D-Los Angeles), a freedom rider during the civil rights struggle in the South who never lost his passion for social justice, died Monday at age 72. His wife, Yvonne LaFargue Greene, said he died at Kaiser South Sacramento Medical Center of complications from several long illnesses, including heart attacks, strokes and pneumonia, which hastened his retirement from the Legislature in 1992.

Langston Hughes is probably the best known name among African-American poets. Lionized for his genial folk language and the wry, understated rage of his later work, he has been our poet laureate for more than 50 years. But reading "The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes" is a much more interesting journey than these frozen sentiments can capture: a journey through the landscape, language, rhythms, and feelings of black America through the better part of this century.
