  • T-Title

  • Me neither it makes me feel different!
  • I don"t understand what the difference is between blacks ans whites!!!!
  • C-Connotation
  • I too am America
  • Based on the title of the poem I think that it means that the narrator is trying to tell readers that he is something/someone in the world and someday everyone will be equal.
  • A-Attitude
  • The poem is overall about a brother who is a different type of person meaning African American. This narrartor is saying that one day in the future it won't matter, and we'll be treated the same.
  • S-Shift
  • I can't believe I made a difference! We are finally equal.
  • Yes it sure is nice.
  • There are only a few uses of literary devices in this poem. For example the narrator of the story uses the metaphor, "I am the darker brother," "I, too sing America", and also "I, too am America". There is also one use of alliteration in the poem which is "company comes."
  • T-Theme
  • There are some uses of attitude in this poem. The first use would be "I, too, am America" because he is using the words boldly as if speaking out to the world. Another use is "I am the darker brother" because he looks different than others.
  • The shift in this poem would be "--and be ashamed" because there are dashes leading to the end of the poem, in this case the future. Another one might be "and grow strong" because it means going in the future strong being a different person.
  • The theme of this poem is that an African American person is treated differently from other people (white people). The poem is telling a story of how one day in the future everyone will be equal and race won't matter.
