Activist And Poet Amanda Gorman Recites Powerful Original Poem At Super Bowl LV [VIDEO]

Activist and poet Amanda Gorman, who was the country's first ever National Youth Poet Laureate, recited an original poem before Sunday's Super Bowl game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Gorman's poem, "Chorus of the Captains," celebrated and introduced the three honorary captains — Pittsburgh-based Marine veteran James Martin, who volunteers with the Wounded Warrior Project and works with at-risk kids, Los Angeles educator Trimaine Davis and Tampa ICU nurse manager Suzie Dorner — who were specially invited to the game by the NFL.
