    It is amazing how nothing ever changes in this country. Even then....this is how Blacks felt. And today even more. Only people of color and those who are not(but willing) will make the difference in this country. (Report) Reply

    This poem counters today's political slogan, Make America Great Again and raises the consciousness of how far we have swayed from the reality of the American Dream. This poem needs to be the theme of the next election campaign. (Report) Reply

    Speaks just as strongly to the America of 2018 as it did to the America of 1935 when the poem was written. A timeless truth unfortunately, but a truth that still carries a great promise rooted in hope. (Report) Reply

    It amazes me that a man would be able to write such a powerful piece of work and let it still be applicable 80+ years later. (Report) Reply

    Langston Hughes was a great poet. This poem was written before Donald Trump's name was known. I think Donald may read this poem Let America Be America Again. Some acknowledgment ought to be given to this great poet. (Report) Reply

    Donald Trump is incapable of understanding this poem. He would see only a superficial similarity to his slogan, and he would make much of that, while completely missing what the poem is actually about.

    What do you think he will think of this poem?
