Trethewey reads "My Mother Dreams Another Country" from her own "Native Guard," which won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry, and recites Langston Hughes' powerful verse, "I, Too, Sing America."

Listen to Natasha Trethewey on "Fresh Air."

“Fresh Air” airs in the Atlanta listening area at 3 p.m. on WJSP-FM, 88.1, and at 7 p.m. on WABE-FM, 90.1.
