âI believe in an America in which opportunity and justice truly are for all. That was the essence of the life an poetry of Langston Hughes.ââSenator John Kerry, from the Preface
A beautifully designed collection of some of the greatest poems by a quintessentially American poet, whose theme of the promise of American inclusiveness continues to ring true.
Langston Hughes was uncommonly attuned to the ideals of freedom and democracy and the sometimes elusive American dream. The poems collected here offer a hopeful, truly democratic vision for America. Incantatory and stirring, passionate and provocative, they are as resonant for our times as they were over half a century ago.
âLet America Be America Again,â âDream of Freedom,â âAmerica,â âSearch,â âSome Day,â âIn Time of Silver Rain,â âDare,â âGive Us Our Peace,â âI Dream a World.â
