Langston Hughes - Walkers With The Dawn

Being walkers with the dawn and morning,
Walkers with the sun and morning,
We are not afraid of night,
Nor days of gloom,
Nor darkness--
Being walkers with the sun and morning.

i'm gonna have to disagree with you on this one...it may be about slaves, however i think its just about through darkness(evil) and gloom, the walkers will always be able to prevail because they have something to look forward too during the nights,day.
the mornings may represent faith, and hope, and that is what helps them to be strong.

Don't you posters get it? This poem is about slaves knowing about sunrise and sunset because of working in the fields. It's neither cool, sweet, or pleasant for them to rise at sunrise.
