Presidential Inaugural poet and alumnus Richard Blanco visits FIU


To come to “One Today,” Blanco said he began to hone in on how he feels about the United States of America. This was the second of three poems he wrote for the White House.

“What I hadn’t expected was it opened my creative channels,” he said. “It’s opened up a way for me to talk about America outside my own framework as an exile. I ended up really, really liking the poem.”
