The United States is what it is, Joe Biden is what he is, but what a powerful and devastating symbol for our hexagonal jesters, false self-centred literates and true illiterates of the heart, that this candidate, who was said to be doddering, stepped aside, on the day of his inauguration, in front of a 22 year old black poetess investing the nomination: Amanda Gorman
On January 20, 2021, Amanda Gorman became the sixth and youngest poet to deliver a poetry reading at a presidential inauguration. Taking the stage after the 46th president of the United States, Joe Biden, Gorman captivated the nation and brought hope to viewers around the globe. Her poem “The Hill We Climb : An Inaugural Poem for the Country” can now be cherished in this special edition. Including an enduring foreword by Oprah Winfrey, this keepsake celebrates the promise of America and affirms the power of poetry.
