Virtual Event

At Biden's inauguration, Amanda Gorman read "The Hill We Climb." But this tradition of democratic poetry is not new. After de Tocqueville wrote Democracy in America, Emerson responded, calling for a "uniquely American voice" in poetry. This discussion explores that lineage of poets advocating justice, transcending race, nationality, or creed.
