One of the most remarkable moments from Wednesday’s inauguration ceremony came from poet Amanda Gorman, the youngest poet in U.S. history to speak at a presidential inauguration. The 22-year-old read The Hill We Climb, a poem she finished right after the riot at the Capitol earlier this month. We feature her full recitation and get a reaction from scholar Cornel West and award-winning journalist Maria Hinojosa.
