James Weldon Johnson and Everyone reading the poem.
The theme is the poem is about freedom believe in yourself and you can do what you want to do.
The tone is high and heavenly.
Felt in the day when hope unborn had died.
The imagery is God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun, Let us march tell victory is won.
I was feeling slight gloomy when the biker man jumped over a tank of sharks.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us,
