Celebrate Black History Month

Learn More about These Remarkable People

During Black History Month, let’s learn more about some remarkable people! This week we are highlighting sisters, Amanda and Gabrielle Gorman. You may have seen Amanda become the youngest poet to recite at an inauguration. She was also the country’s first National Youth

Poet Laureate in 2017. She overcame a speech impediment and recites a mantra before every poetry performance: “I am the daughter of Black writers, who are descended from Freedom Fighters, who broke the chains who changed the world. They call me.”
