I, Too, Sing America. - Poem by Bethany Williams

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And I 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,1925
