Sherrie Silver and Amanda Gorman’s Spectacular Dance/Poetry Performance

2019 NY Summit

Amanda Gorman, the 21-year-old inaugural Youth Poet Laureate of the United States of America, opened the 2019 Women in the World Summit with a stunning reading of her empowering poetry. Accompanying Gorman onstage was a troupe of dancers led by legendary choreographer Sherrie Silver, the mastermind behind Childish Gambino’s award-winning music video “This Is America.” Together, the two artists combined their talents to create a potent combination of words and movement. #WITW #AmandaGorman #SherrieSilver #dance #poetry
