Extra comment with links regarding SCWAMP

 Langston Hughes is one of my favorite poets. I enjoy reading poems written by African Americans during the Harlem Renessaince because these poems are rich with culture and history. Many of the poems convey a message of hope and dreams of the African American and many convey the struggle through at time of oppression and segregation.  SCWAMP was very visible back then, as it is now. We now have the media in which young America can veiw this ideology. This ideology is inferred in so much of the literature and poetry. I have posted a few links below.  One of my favorite poems is "I, Too" by Hughes
