"Go home and write a page tonight. And let that page come out of you- Then, it will be true."
"I went to school there, then Durham, then here to this college on the hill above Harlem. I am the only colored student in my class"

Title and Theme
"As I learn from you, I guess you learn from me- although you're older- and white- and somewhat more free. This is my page for english B."
Hughes attitude in the poem is optimistic about the future connection between the races.
