Poem introduction

For a whole race of people freed from slavery with nothing - without money, without work, without education - it has not always been easy to hold fast to dreams. But the negro people believed in the American Dream. Now, since almost a hundred years of freedom, we've come a long ways but there's still a long way to go for the Negro and democracy. This is a poem called 'I, Too'.
