Langston Hughes wrote the poem “Words Like Freedom,” and in it he states, “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.”

My poster pays tribute to him and all the words we say with our votes.
