Richard Blanco: Son of Cuban Exiles Chosen As First Latino Inaugural Poet
Here’s what one of them told the New York Times:
“I think he was chosen because his America is very similar to the president’s America,” said Liz Balmaseda, who met Mr. Blanco in the mid-1990s when he was just emerging as a poet, and she was working as a columnist for The Miami Herald. “You don’t have to be an exile, you don’t have to be Latino or gay to get the yearning in Richard’s poetry.”
The White House and the president also released a statement. Notice Obama translated the poet’s last name into English.
“It is an honor to have Richard White in our second inauguration,” Obama said. “His contributions to the fields of poetry and art have paved the way for future generations of writers. Richard’s work is well-suited for an opening that will celebrate the strength and diversity of our great country.”
