CML Presents: I, Too by Langston Hughes


I, Too by Langston Hughes I, too, sing America.
I am the darker brother. They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes, But I laugh, And eat well,
And grow strong. Tomorrow,I’ll be at the table
When company comes. Nobody’ll dare say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,” Then. Besides, They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed— I, too, am America.
