Today in class we took a close look at the poem Harlem 2 by Langston Hughes. We discussed and took notes analyzing the symbolism in the poem, citing evidence, and relating it back to the theme of the poem.

Core will finish up this activity in the next day or two. Advanced classes will move on to a short story by Langston Hughes as we dig into more analysis of the text.
