A poem for African American History Month from the pen of Langston Hughes

Note on Commercial Theatre 
Langston Hughes

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 
Me myself! 
Yes, it’ll be me.


Note: This Sunday’s schedule is different from the previous Sundays. Bible study will take place after worship and we will begin the virtual soul food dinner at 12:30 pm. It is also hat Sunday. If you are ZOOMing in you are invited to wear a hat!
