"Let America be America Again”

The prophetic work of Langston Hughes "Let America be America Again" is a reminder that justice and equality continue to elude not only African Americans but other economically disadvantaged and minority groups as well.  Neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump has effectively addressed the issues that affect this group as a whole; police brutality, mass incarceration, job loss, and low wages.
