The Panther and the Lash [v2.5]

I am the American heartbreak- The rock on which Freedom Stumped its toe- The great mistake That Jamestown made Long ago. - Langston Hughes, "American Heartbreak"   From the publication of his first book in 1926, Langston Hughes was America's acknowledged poet of color, the first to commemorate the experience-and suffering-of African Americans in a voice that no reader, black or white, could fail to hear. In this, his last collection of verse, Hughes's voice is more pointed than ever before, as he explicitly addresses the racial politics of the sixties in such pieces as "Prime," "Motto," "Dream Deferred," "Frederick Douglass: 1817-1895," "Still Here," "Birmingham Sunday," "History," "Slave,"
