The Hill We Climb: An Inaugural Poem
On 20 January 2021, Amanda Gorman spoke a message of truth and hope to millions.
Aged twenty-two, 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.
