“Make AMERICA Again” | Langston Hughes Poem Let America Be America Again

This Op-Ed celebrates Langston Hughes’ iconic poem, "Let America Be America Again,” by situating it in the context of current political traumas: the Trump administration’s assault on American values of equality, pluralism, and human dignity. Featuring found media footage and excerpts from public poetry readings by activists Nikki Giovanni and Michael Moore, this Op-Ed is a rallying cry for all Americans to join the Resistance.
