#29DaysOfBlackness: Outfit of the Day 4.0 (and a Langston Hughes poem)

I got this shirt in 2008 as part of a set of voting-themed clothing, and it is still dope as F*ck!


Shirt: "I, too, Sing America" t-shirt by Ragamuffin Clothing (company has since closed but still love the shirt) || Earrings: Large Adinkra Sankofa earrings by Seiwa Akoto


I, too, sing America
I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen when company comes.
But I laugh.
And eat well. 
And grow strong. 
Tomorrow, I'll be at the table.
When company comes, nobody'll dare say to me,
"Eat in the kitchen," then. 
Besides, they'll see how beautiful I am and be ashamed.
I, too, am America
--Langston Hughes
