Read in February, 1st time. Langston Hughes Poems: "I, Too" , "Theme for English B" , "Freedom" , "Words like Freedom" , "Visitors to the Black Belt" , "The Weary Blues" , "The Negro Speaks of Rivers."

Langston Hughes' poem is carved into the wall at the African American Museum on the National Mall. His words are a powerful reminder of what it was like to be black in America prior to the civil rights movement. How can you relate to this poem?
