Ferris Bueller’s Day Off - John Hughes

I know everyone has seen this movie, but if you haven’t heard Hughes talk about the movie then you are sorely missing out. There is so much depth and beauty in the movie and in this scene in particular that it’s staggering. Wonderful film and director.

"I, Too, Sing America"

by Langston Hughes

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.
