I, too

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," 
They’ll see how beautiful I am 
And be ashamed— 
 I, too, am America.

Langston Hughes, 1902 - 1967
