this was the first poem i ever learned in school. i was in the 9th ra when
I did this poem that was 15 years ago and I can still remember every word
from this poem. It's funny cause I am a very dark woman and when I said
"look at my face dark as the night" all my friends began to laugh
but.....when i completed that poem I recived a stand O. It made me feel soo
good about myself.. I know this is a powerful poem cause my family still
remembeer bits and peices from it. I plan on doin it at my family reunion
this summer.

THAT POEM REALLY TOUCHED MY HEART. IT SHOWED THE PAIN THAT MANY BLACK
POEPLE HAD TO SUFFER, YET NEVER GAVE UP. I AM REALLY INSPIRED BY THE POEM
BECAUSE IT MAKES ME WANT TO CONTINUE THIS JOURNEY THAT I HAVE BEGUN, AND
MAKE MY ANCESTORS PROUD BY LETTING THEM KNOW THAT THEIR SUFFERING DID NOT
GO UNNOTICED. SOMETHING AS DEEP AS THE NEGRO MOTHER CAN NEVER BE CONSIDERED
SHALLOW!

This is one of the most beautiful poems I have ever read and the most
beautiful i ever recited. i recited it at my church during our womans day
program, but then I couldn't find it anymore until now. I just LOVE this
poem an now that I HAVE FOUND IT, believe me it will not get misplaced
again.On my wall it goes until my grandchildren are old enough to
understand.

I'm a Mexican, but grew up loving and looking up to black people. Langston
is one of the African-Americans I respect the most. In his poems, he just
speaks and writes with his heart. That is what makes his poems touch the
strings of your heart.
