„What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?“

—  Langston Hughes
Context: What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore — And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over — like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode? "Harlem"

„The steel of freedom does not stain.
From those who live like leeches on the people's lives,
We must take back our land again,
America!“

—  Langston Hughes
Context: Sure, call me any ugly name you choose — The steel of freedom does not stain. From those who live like leeches on the people's lives, We must take back our land again, America!

„You are white —
yet a part of me, as I am a part of you.“

—  Langston Hughes
Context: You are white — yet a part of me, as I am a part of you. That’s American. Sometimes perhaps you don’t want to be a part of me. Nor do I often want to be a part of you. But we are, that’s true! As I learn from you, I guess you learn from me — although you’re older — and white — and somewhat more free. "Theme from English B"

„I, too, sing America.
I am the darker brother.“

—  Langston Hughes
Context: 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. "I, Too, Sing America," in the magazine Survey Graphic (March 1925); reprinted in Selected Poems (1959)
