I teach in a school where there are some 23 different nationalities
represented. In English we have been studying Racial Prejudice, I thought
this poem was apt. A lot of my students have been posing similar questions
about what is colour. I will read this poem tomorrow and see what they
think. Any other suggestions?

What does this poem mean, and how does it relate to the time period of the
1920s and the Harlem Renaissance? Some analysis would be appreciated.
