Langston Hughes' powerful poem addresses the issues of racism, division, poverty, and greed, and Dilworth's inclusion of the African American spiritual I've Been in the Storm So Long establishes historical context in this inspiring concert selection that celebrates diversity and asks challenging questions. His use of a mixed choir and a treble choir or soloist allows for intergenerational connection as the treble choir represents the role of innocent children singing "Dona nobis pacem" (Grant us peace).
