“I Too Sing America” curated by Onnie Strother, currently on display at Seton Hall University School of Law features work by Larry McKim, Gladys Grauer and Samar Hasan. The title of this exhibit comes from the first line of Langston Hughes’s poem I Too, first published in 1926. Written long before the Civil Rights movement, the poem is a reaction to Jim Crow laws; enforced racial segregation and second class citizenship. I Too Sing America, is critical but it is not despairing. Like Langston Hughes, the artists featured in this exhibition do not see a need for an America that needs to be made great. They envision a greater, more inclusive America.
