“That Justice is a blind goddess
Is a thing to which we black are wise.
Her bandage hides two festering sores
That once perhaps were eyes”  -- Langston Hughes
(“Justice,” 1923)

 

“There is today no lack within the Negro people of Beauty, strength and power – world shaking power. If I were a young writer, I would try to put some of these qualities on paper and on stage.” -- Langston Hughes
(“The Task of the Negro Writer and Artist,” 1965)
