Langston Hughes is one of the best poets of the 20th century best known for his role for the “Harlem Renaissance” in the 1920's and 1930s. During a time which blacks would challenge racism in things like art, music, and literature. And Langston Hughes poems would reflect that and in the poem “Negro” it was no different. The poem discusses on the history and treatment of African Americans from the past throughout slavery. The speaker of the poem is a combination of African Americans throughout slavery and the tone of the voice is a proud but yet saddened voice. Like when he say “I am a Negro Black as the night is black, Black like the depths of my Africa.” (p.429) it has a more proud and prideful tone. But when he starts to discuss the life of a slave it has sadder and more down tone. Hughes goes on to describes himself and his race as slaves, workers, singers and victims who were discriminated in different ways from different people in different times of history. Hughes uses great allusions in the poem to show the involvement of African Americans had on history throughout slavery. Like when he say “Caesar told me to keep his door-steps clean.” and “I brushed the boots of Washington.” (p.429) he’s referring to a Roman general Julius Caesar and the first President of the United States George Washington. In the next stanza Hughes explains what the African Americans were able to accomplish involving hard labor. We were able to build pyramids in ancient Egypt when he says “Under my hand the pyramids arose” (p.429). And that we were able to build one of the tallest buildings and the tallest in the 1910s in New York City when he says “I made mortar for the Woolworth Building” (p.429). When he say “All the way from Africa to Georgia I carried my sorrow songs. I made ragtime.” (p.429) in the next stanza he begins to discuss the musical influences the African Americans had in history with the creation of jazz music/ragtime while carrying with a lot of pain and sorrow with their disbandment from their natural heritage. Then he goes on to show
regular African American lifestyle even thought I was born in America. Throughout my years of high school and college I’ve spoken to so many girls who have had the same problem as me.

consumers in North America and Western Europe have started to pay attention to their health and therefore slowly decreasing the rate of drinking, African has started to be blinded by beers.

approve of the consumption of alcohol during pregnancy or lactation. This is due to the adverse effects produced by this drink. Foods and nutrition may also be affected by culture, with respect to different beliefs within the culture. For example, African-Americans and many Southerners are at greater risk for ailments such as heart disease and diabetes, but Southern-style fried foods, biscuits and ham hocks might not be the only culprits. Income levels, limited access to healthier foods and exercise habits…

In 1619, Englishmen, Englishwomen, and Africans immigrated to the colonies, which was odd because of the declining Native American relations, terrible environmental conditions, high mortality rates. These women and men would continue to colonize in Virginia by establishing more tobacco plantations, but to make the plantations profitable, the owners needed workers that they would not have to pay. So, landowners bought slaves and hired indentured slaves by paying her or his way to the colonies and…
