"I, too, sing America - I am the darker brother ..." - Langston Hughes.
Chapter I: Introducting Negro Americans begins with the teacher asking "some of us might tell, one at a time, about a Negro person he knows; so, Jenny, you be first." "Yes, I know about Negroes," said Jenny, "because a colored lady works for my mother. Her name is Anna Jenkins, and Mother says she doesn't know what she'd do without her. She looks out for us all, and she makes the most wonderful cookies.""
"Clearly geared for use in white or predominantly white classrooms, Marion Cuthbert's We Sing America (1936) not only celebrated the achievements of outstanding African Americans but also pointed to the grave and repeated injustices suffered by the majority of blacks in a racist system." - Julia L. Mickenberg; Learning From The Left: Children's Literature, The Cold War, And Radical Politics in the United States.
