I, too, sing America

Read the poem by Langston Hughes. Who is the "I" of the poem in your opinion? When do you think was the poem written? What words would you use to describe the speaker's feelings and emotions?
Do you know any famous American "darker brothers"? Who are they?

Here is another poem by the same poet. Do you like it?

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
