The Hill We Climb
On 20 January 2021, poet, activist, and US youth poet laureate, Amanda Gorman spoke a message of truth and hope to millions.
Aged twenty-two - the youngest presidential inaugural poet in US history - she delivered a poetry reading at the inauguration of US President Joe Biden. Her poem, The Hill We Climb, addressed the country and reached across the world: a call for a brave future.
This special edition, which includes an enduring foreword by Oprah Winfrey, marks that poem and offers us courage, consolation, and the inspiration to make change.
Foreword by Oprah Winfrey.
'I was profoundly moved as I watched you read your poem 'The Hill We Climb' at last month's Inauguration. The power of your words blew me away - but it was more than that. It was your presence onstage, the confidence you exuded as a young Black woman helping to turn the page to a more hopeful chapter in American leadership... It made me so happy.' - MICHELLE OBAMA
'A moment of history in book form.' - STYLIST
