I,Too, Am America

Art Showcase, Authors, Blog, English, Poetry, Society

Martin Luther King Jr.’s Method and Goal, was to give the African American people a voice, to help them stand up, and , much like Booker T. Washington, to give them a way to build their way up to the top of the social structure, to prove themselves worthy of high positions.

His Intentions and motives, therefore, are best explained in the poem ” I, too” by Langston Hughes.

So, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day this year, I present to you a Spoken Word Animation and Montage of the Poem ” I,too”. Below it, is the full text of the poem.

 

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.

 

Tomorrow,
I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,”
Then.

 

Besides,
They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

 

I, too, am America.
– Langston Hughes
