Two Reasons To Smile Today!

Love this picture of Langston!

Today, February 1st, is the first day of Black History Month, and It's Langston Hughes' Birthday!

"Cross" by Langston Hughes
My old man's a white old man
And my old mother's black.
If ever I cursed my white old man
I take my curses back.
If ever I cursed my black old mother
And wished she were in hell,
I'm sorry for that evil wish
And now I wish her well
My old man died in a fine big house.
My ma died in a shack.
I wonder where I'm going to die,
Being neither white nor black?
