Poet Amanda Gorman Will Be Interviewed By Oprah For “The Oprah Conversation”

23-year-old poet Amanda Gorman, who made history as the youngest inaugural poet, will join Oprah Winfrey in conversation this Friday for “The Oprah Conversation” on Apple TV Plus. 

“The Hill We Climb,” the touching poem that Gorman recited during Biden’s inauguration, will be discussed. She’ll speak about the creative process behind the poem, and share childhood stories that molded her into who she is today. To commemorate Women’s History Month, they will discuss inspirational women who have inspired Gorman to follow her dreams as a poet.  

“Amanda Gorman is a young woman who stepped into a moment in history with enormous grace and dignity,” Winfrey said in a statement for Variety. “I was enthralled by her youthful spirit from the first moment we met, and very much looked forward to hearing her unpack all that has happened to her the past few months.”

Previous guests on “The Oprah Conversation” include Stevie Wonder, Barack Obama, Professor Ibram X. Kendi, and Bryan Stevenson.
