I absolutelty Love Langston hughes poetry. I've wondered if " I to, am America" was the inspiration for Paul McCartneys Black Bird?

I remember hearing that poem in 4th grade, it was very impressive on me as a young child and still is today at 62 years old. I believe that is when I first realized and fell in love with this country. Today, I am disappointed.

Hughes could sum up complex ideas in simple and short stanzas, and yet hit you with the effect of a punch to the gut. He was always my favorite author of love poems for this reason, but I adore this poem as well, for the same reason. It's sad that things in 2018 haven't progressed as far as he dreamed of, but I love that as a child I could read this work and envision what he was talking about.
