My People Poem by Langston Hughes

My People

Rating: 3.6


The night is beautiful,
So the faces of my people.

The stars are beautiful,
So the eyes of my people.

Beautiful, also, is the sun.
Beautiful, also, are the souls of my people.

I think that it is beautiful and remarkable how he uses nature to express the beauty of African Americans.
