Besides, why is the tone of Langston Hughes I too determined?
I say this tone is surprising because the poem wrestles with a very unsavory subject: America's racist history. However, for all that, when Hughes announces his ability to "laugh" (5), to "eat well" (6), and to "grow strong" (7), he also announces his capacity for joy in the face of a racist society.

Langston Hughes. In this poem each stanza is split up into two sentences. The poem is being read in first person; "I, too, sing America." The first and the last lines are the only exception they are their own sentence. There are no rhyming words in this poem.
