Words Like Freedom--By Langston Hughes

This project was created for a Digital Video (LAI 536) class at the University at Buffalo. Most participants were not harmed in the making of this video.

Words Like Freedom

There are words like Freedom
Sweet and wonderful to say.
On my heart strings freedom sings
All day everyday.

There are words like Liberty
That almost make me cry.
If you had known what I know
You would know why.

-Langston Hughes (from p. 38 of Poetry For Young People: Langston Hughes)
