snippet from poet Langston Hughes [1901-67]

snippet from "Let America Be America Again" [1935] by poet Langston Hughes

The steel of freedom does not stain . . .

We, the people, must redeem
The land, the mines, the plants, the rivers.
The mountains and the endless plain --
All, all the stretch of these great green states --
And make America again!
