Happy Birthday Langston!
My students and I will read some of your words tomorrow. They love you and can relate to you.They memorize you without me instructing them to do so. Maybe, it’s because you affirm their voices and their beauty.
The night is beautiful,
So the faces of my people.
The stars are beautiful,
So the eyes of my people.
Beautiful, also, is the sun.
Beautiful, also, are the souls of my people.
This is why I love you and your words, your legacy and your spirit.
