He is Marvelous because he is the part of one who has started fighting
against white through literature after slavery system. Also he was a member
of Harlem renaissance.

I deepyl agree with Andy on this. I think that Langston Hughes uses his
poems to express his love of the African American Community on a deeper
level. This poem really moves me.

I think the first stanza is during slavery where he can only show his true
feelings in the night but the second stanza is about the times just after
the abolishment of slavery where he can be who he wants to be without
having to hide it in the black of night

the first stanza is his dream. the second reality.
in the first stanza, there is no feeling of force and harshness. he is
simply whirling and dancing wherever he wants and then when the evening
comes, he would rest under a tree as an dark man.
in the second, he has to forcefully and aggressively dance and whirl and he
must do it defiantly against the sun (or the whites) and when the night
comes, he will rest as a black man.
in shorter words, this poem is his dream of equality.
