„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.

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

—  Langston Hughes

"I, Too, Sing America," in the magazine Survey Graphic (March 1925); reprinted in Selected Poems (1959)
Contexto: 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.

„What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up
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?

„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!

„I stay cool, and dig all jive,
That's the way I stay alive.
My motto,
as I live and learn,
is
Dig and be dug
In return.“

—  Langston Hughes

"Motto"
Montage of a Dream Deferred (1951)
Variante: My motto,
As I live and learn,
is:
Dig And Be Dug
In Return.
