Poetry Friday: I, Too, Sing America

I, Too, Sing America by Langston Hughes


(Listen to Hughes read the poem)

Besides,
They'll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed --

I, too, am America.

Thanks for the links. I've never heard Langston Hughes voice before. I like the other one since it will make people google Langston Hughes but do you know why it was made?
