Look at And Comprehend the Meaning of America, I, too, sing America by Langston Hughes.

Poem :: America Index ::

America

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.
