Musin’ with Susan 6/16/20 – “I, Too”

Musin’ with Susan 6/16/20

from Langston Hughes, I hope this tomorrow is here:

I, Too

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.

I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,”

They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

I, too, am America.

~Langston Hughes
