I, Too, Sing America
I, Too, Sing America Langston Hughes, Lincoln University '29 Poet, Social Activist, Novelist and Playwright 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.
