„The steel of freedom does not stain.
From those who live like leeches on the people's lives,
We must take back our land again,
America!“

— Langston Hughes
Context: Sure, call me any ugly name you choose — The steel of freedom does not stain. From those who live like leeches on the people's lives, We must take back our land again, America!

„What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?“

— Langston Hughes
Context: What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore — And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over — like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode? "Harlem"

„I, too, sing America.
I am the darker brother.“

— Langston Hughes
Context: 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, Too, Sing America," in the magazine Survey Graphic (March 1925); reprinted in Selected Poems (1959)

„You are white —
yet a part of me, as I am a part of you.“

— Langston Hughes
Context: You are white — yet a part of me, as I am a part of you. That’s American. Sometimes perhaps you don’t want to be a part of me. Nor do I often want to be a part of you. But we are, that’s true! As I learn from you, I guess you learn from me — although you’re older — and white — and somewhat more free. "Theme from English B"
