African American Poetry (1870-1926): A Digital Anthology

Langston Hughes, "Johannesburg Mines" (1925)

In the Johannesburg Mines
There are 240,000 
Native Africans working.
What kind of poem
Would you 
Make out of that?
240,000 natives
Working in the 
Johannesburg mines. 


Published in The Messenger, February 1925
