LangstonHughes Quote Beautiful Darkness

Beautiful Darkness

I am the darker brother. They send me to eat in the kitchen
when company comes, but I laugh and I eat well, and I grow strong.

Tomorrow I’ll Be at the table when company comes, nobody will dare say to me “eat in the kitchen” then.

Besides they’ll see how beautiful I am and be ashamed.

Langston Hughes, I, Too, Am America
