the poem is about historical events
Added by: ashley
the poem isnt about historical events. if you read the poem carefully it is about unity and peace. hughes hopes for good things in teh world to come, he's not writing about history. he's writing about the future hopes.

I completely agree with Ashley! This poem is about hopes for equality. Read other poems and stories by Langston Hughes. His works tend to promote equality, condemn racism and injustice and celebrate African American culture, humor, and spirituality.

This poem through its retoric and sound relates to the common man. Through his poetry Hughes tries to relate messages of freedom and equality. The "daybreak" means the freedom of the african americans in which they earned respect through the harlem renaissance because they were being accepted because of their jazz music. Daybreak symbolizes equality which Hughes would like to convey to his country at that point in time.

this poem is about creating harmony between all races and it does deal with historical events as well because ASHLEY if you recall Alabama is the deep south where slavery originnated, in fact slavery was awful in Alabama, so langston hughes wants to end slavery ther first because thats where it originated, so it has to do with not only unity, but history as well, because slavery is history.
