or does it explode?

i have loved the poem "harlem" since i first read it in high school. i know langston hughes wrote it for african americans to inspire them to continue fighting for civil equality in the 1950's, and that doesn't really pertain to me, but i still get the chills every time i read it.

something about danny glover's wraspy voice and the excitement of the olympics seriously made me break down in tears when i saw this on t.v. i love it, it will forever be one of my favorite poems of all time.

I love danny glover. he is probably best known in my mind in the movie, "Angels in the outfeild." - at least, I think that's Danny Glover...
