At 15, after a three-year apprenticeship to an engraver who beat him, Jean ran away. Guided by his spiritual upbringing, he sought the protection of a priest who followed a different type of religion, called Catholicism. The priest helped him become the secretary of a noblewoman, Françoise-Louise de Warens, who encouraged Jean to become Catholic and arranged music lessons. Jean’s interest in music led him to travel through Europe and finally to settle in Paris. His curiosity about humanity and spirituality was so strong, it led him into discussions and arguments.
He wrote poetry in Paris and worked as a busboy in Washington, DC, where he met poet Vachel Lindsay who used his influence to bring Langston’s poetry to the attention of publishers. His poem “The Weary Blues” won first prize in a magazine contest before being added to his collection, which was also called The Weary Blues, in 1926. At this time Langston also received a scholarship to study at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, where his poetry was recognized by his teachers. With the successful publication of his novel Not Without Laughter in 1929, Langston became one of the first African-Americans to earn a living as a writer.
