Negro by Langston Hughes • I am a Negro: • Black as the night is black, • Black like the depths of my Africa. • I’ve been a slave; • Caesar told me to keep his door-steps clean. • I brushed the boots of Washington. • I’ve been a worker: • Under my hand the pyramids arose. • I made mortar for the Woolworth Building, • I’ve been a singer: • All the way from Africa to Georgia • I carried my sorrow songs. • I made ragtime.
I am a Negro: Black as the night is black, Black like the depths of my Africa.
I am fromQuisquella la bella, frommerengue, bachata, perico, ripiao, and church bells on Sundays. I am from the words Dios, patria, libertad from the feeling of sadness, but also of not giving up. • I am • from the promise of friendship and love, • from “always be yourself,” • “believe in who you are.” I Am Quisquella la Bellaby Amiris Ramirez • I am • from rice and beans, • roast chicken, pernil, • plátanos, mangos, coconuts, corn. • I am • from beautiful • gardens with palm trees, • from mountains and precious beaches. • I am Latina. • Dominican. • Proud.
