Amanda Gorman Brings Hope With the Power of Poetry

Our first National Youth Poet Laureate captured our hearts and gave us hope for our country’s future with the oration of her poem, “The Hill We Climb” at Joe Biden’s and Kamala Harris’ inauguration this morning.

PBS News Hour coverage of Amanda Gorman reading her incredible poem, “The Hill We Climb.”

“Where can we find light in this never-ending shade?” she asked.

“Somehow we do it,” she almost sang out. “Somehow we weathered and witnessed a nation that isn’t broken, but simply unfinished.”
