I, Too, by Langston Hughes

I, Too

I, too, sing America.
I am the darker brother.They send me to eat in the kitchenWhen company comes,But I laugh,And eat well,And grow strong.
Tomorrow,I'll be at the tableWhen company comes.Nobody'll dareSay to me,“Eat in the kitchen,”Then.
Besides, They'll see how beautiful I amAnd be ashamed—
I, too, am America.
