I, Too, Sing America – Langston Hughes

I, too, sing America.
I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchenWhen company comes, 
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.
Tomorrow,I'll be at the table 
When company comes.
Nobody'll dare
Say to me,
"Eat in the kitchen,"
Then.
Besides, 
They'll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed
I, too, am America. SOURCE
