I, Too, Sing America -- Langston Hughes

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. 


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.
