"African Americans Fighting Fascism and Racism" -- Matthew Delmont

from the article linked above, a portion of a Langston Hughes poem (

“Looky here, America / What you done done / Let things drift / Until the riots come […] You tell me that hitler / Is a mighty bad man / I guess he took lessons from the ku klux klan […] I ask you this question / Cause I want to know / How long I got to fight / BOTH HITLER — AND JIM CROW.”
