Like a Winding Sheet Lesson
I, Too, Sing America
Poem by Langston Hughes
Coleman 2009
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.
Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die,
Life is a broken-
winged bird
that cannot fly,
Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams go,
Life is a barren
field,
Frozen with snow
Langston Hughes
What is a Winding Sheet?
Before fancy coffins with
pillows and satin, bodies were
wrapped in a sheet and laid in
a wooden box.
That sheet was called a “winding
sheet.”
Thus the connotation is death.

The Anger’s Progression

to strike her like a lot of men
might have done. He wasn’t made
that way”
Ln 60-61

were drawn back into a think
narrow line. A vein in his
forehead stood out swollen,
thick.”
Ln 112-114
The Anger’s Progression
With Coffee Shop Girl
“He felt his hands began to
tingle… They were clenched
tight, hard, into fists… He
wanted to… hit her so hard that
the scarlet lipstick on her
mouth would smear…”
Ln 230-233
The Anger’s Progression
With Mae
“There was the smacking sound of
soft flesh being struck by a hard
object… so hard that the dark red
lipstick had blurred and spread…He
kept sticking her…He had lost
control over his hands… his hands
reached for her face again and yet
again.”
Ln 314-325
The Anger’s Progression
“King of Pain”
The Police
Song Excerpt
There's a little black spot on
the sun today
It's the same old thing as
yesterday
There's a black hat caught in a
high tree top
There's a flag-pole rag and the
wind won't stop
I have stood here before inside
the pouring rain
With the world turning circles
running 'round my brain
I guess I'm always hoping that
you'll end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the
king of pain
To Consider:
• Significance of story title?
• Is Mr. Johnson naturally
violent?
• Explain: the :anger-born energy
that had not been used had
spread through him like a
poison.
• Who was responsible for Mr.
Johnson’s actions?
To Consider:
• Do you blame Mr. Johnson for
finally boiling over? Should he
have exercised more self-
control? What other options did
he have to release his anger?
• Is violence ever the answer?
