Black Misery was first published in 1969, but the gentle, funny, and sometimes melancholy words of Langston Hughes still cause a blink of recognition. After 25 years, it remains relevant in our own time. As you turn the pages you may say, "I remember feeling like that!" You may say, "I feel like that now." As you look at Arouni's black and white illustrations and read the short but powerful one sentence captions, you feel the predicament of a black child adjusting to the new world of integration of the 1960s. You feel the mix of hope and dismay that characterized the decade. Langston Hughes was a writer who often made his readers ask hard questions about life. In Black Misery he wrote about prejudice and indifference, but he wrote with humor and compassion. Today--just as we did 25 years ago-we smile and even laugh, and we also understand that some things are more than hard, are more than sad. They are pure misery. Black Misery was the last book that Langston Hughes wrote. He died in May 1967, while working on the manuscript.… (mer)

Black Misery is about seeing through eyes and feelings of a Black child living in times where elements of racism was a norm in the United States. I think this book would be great for fourth graders and up. I would have children memorize the poem. Then say the poem with emotion to the class, each having there on twist at the end. This way children can have a better understanding of what Blacks went through during this time.

Echoing "Happiness Is . . . " Langston Hughes looks at what is misery.
Though dated, this book makes some very clear points about being African-American in the U.S. It also looks at the world through a child's eyes and sees that the world is not always perfect. It stresses that children can be cruel, teachers can say stupid things, and that parents can be snobs or snubbed. The language is very simple, and that makes this book all the more affecting.
Due to the fact that it was published in 1969, it may be tough for parents and teachers to explain some of the references to younger elementary school students. However, it would be particularly good to use while explaining the Civil Rights movement to older elementary school students. It makes it very easy for a white child to see through the eyes of a black child. ( )
