A poem for African American History Month from the pen of Langston Hughes
Note on Commercial Theatre
You’ve taken my blues and gone-
You sing ‘em on Broadway
And you sing ‘em in the Hollywood Bowl,
And you mixed ‘em up with symphonies
And you fixed ‘em
So they don’t sound like me.
Yep, you done taken my blues and gone.
You also took my spirituals and gone.
You put me in Macbeth and Carmen Jones
And all kinds of Swing Mikados
And in everything but what’s about me –
But someday somebody’ll
Stand up and talk about me,
And write about me –
Black and beautiful –
And sing about me,
And put on plays about me!
I reckon it’ll be
Yes, it’ll be me.
