Did you watch the inauguration of President Joe Biden? If so, do you know who wowed the crowd with her impassioned speech? Or, who stole the opening at Super Bowl 55? It was none other than the hottest young poet to hit the scene in years - Amanda Gorman.
Amanda has shown herself to be a formidable orator with her emergence on the national stage, as she sets the mic on fire with her clever use of metaphor and rhyme. Madison examines Amanda's imagery in this episode as we kick off our nod to Black History Month.
