like a raisin in the sun?“

—  Langston Hughes

"Harlem"
Montage of a Dream Deferred (1951)
Contexto: 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?

„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

"Theme from English B"
Montage of a Dream Deferred (1951)
Contexto: 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.

„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

Let America Be America Again (1935)
Contexto: 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!
