Black identified artist Tom Feeling was very troubled as a child at the “unanswered questions” which came up as a result of his learning about the hardships other black people had experienced. Poet Langston Hughes helped him to “light up all those corners of his mind” and inspired him to express himself “just like him” with art.
He quotes directly from Langton’s poem “My People”:
MY PEOPLE ********
The night is beautiful, so the face of my people. The stars are beautiful, so the eyes of my people. Beautiful, also, is the sun. Beautiful, also, are the souls of my people. (from page 50 of Taking With Artists – compiled and edited by Pat Cummings).
