a rare and necessary piece of art January 19, 2009

I read a captivating poem by Langston Hughes in the books section of the Oregonian yesterday that has stayed with me ever since…

I, Too, Sing America - Langston Hughes

I thought his beautiful lines were also beautifully framed by David Biespiel, who wrote: “A deft political poem, a poem that inserts itself into civic discourse with one eye on time and another eye on lyrical imperatives, is a rare and necessary piece of art.”

I feel very proud of how far we’ve come, and very grateful for the chance to go further.

See you in the morning!
