Early this year, Amanda Gorman made history as the youngest person to ever write a poem for a president's inauguration.
Yesterday, just six weeks after performing on a national stage, the 22-year-old poet was profiled on her way home.
Quote-tweeting her previous comments about living in a "contradictory society," Amanda wrote, "A security guard tailed me on my walk home tonight. He demanded [to know] if i lived there because 'you look suspicious.'"
"I showed my keys & buzzed myself into my building. He left, no apology."
"This is the reality of Black girls: One day you’re called an icon, the next day, a threat."
