Who is Amanda Gorman who recited the poem at Biden’s inauguration?
Amanda Gorman is the youngest poet in history to speak at the inauguration of the President of the United States. His poem appealed to unity and solidarity.
The 22-year-old poet presented her poem “The Hill We Climb” (Mountains We Climb) to participants in Washington DC and to live viewers around the world.
The beginning of his five-minute poem was something like, “When that day comes, we will ask ourselves, ‘Where can we find light in this unstoppable shadow?’
He also mentioned in his poem that the US House of Representatives had stormed the Capitol earlier this month.
We have also seen a force that will break our nation instead of living together. It will destroy democracy by suspending it.
“It simply came to our notice then. But democracy can be temporarily suspended, but it can never be completely defeated.
In his poem, he described himself as “a thin black girl, whose ancestors were slaves, and who was raised by a single mother, a girl who could dream of becoming president, another president today.” She is reciting a poem.
