Class Experience

Students will be inspired to know they can make a difference when examining the life and writing of Amanda Gorman. 
As a lover of African-American literature, poetry, in general and as an American-African mom I was inspired by Gorman's life story, example and, much more important, her message of hope and unity. As a homeschool mom, I was teaching my young sons, and one of them asked if everybody knew about her. When my homeschool lesson was over I told them I would tell others. This class is the result of that promise to them.
