Not MLK, but Relevant


Engraved Langston Hughes quote at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture

“You tell me that hitler
Is a mighty bad man.
I guess he took lessons
from the ku klux klan…
Cause everything that hitler
And mussolini do,
Negroes get the same
Treatment from you…
I ask you this question
Cause I want to know
How long I got to fight
BOTH HITLER-AND JIM CROW.”
-Langston Hughes,
“Beaumont to Detroit: 1943”

Still fighting.
