Darker brother

Storyboard Text

  • I, Too by Langston Hughes
  • HECTOR AGUILA Period 5
  • I am the darker brother.
  • They send me to eat in the kitchen/ When company comes
  • Tomorrow, / I’ll be at the table
  • Nobody’ll dare/ Say to me,/ “Eat in the kitchen,”
  • They’ll see how beautiful I am/ And be ashamed
  • WOW
  • In the short poem "I, Too" by Langston Hughes, the speaker talks about how he is determined and not put down about what is happening around him. He talks about being the darker brother and getting sent to the kitchen to eat because he is black and not treated fairly. This does not affect him and has faith that in the future he will be sitting in the table, eating with the "other" people. He believes the day will come where America is one and everyone will be equal.
