On Phillis Wheatley

February 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join historians Cornelia Dayton and Kerri Greenidge in a conversation about famed poet Phillis Wheatley Peters (1753 – 1784).  Educated and enslaved in the household of prominent Boston commercialist John Wheatley, Phillis wrote poetry – styled after Milton and Pope – that brought her fame both in America and abroad.  Her name was a household word among literate colonists and her achievements a catalyst for the fledgling antislavery movement.

This is a free event, held both in-person and virtually. Donations are encouraged to support the Concord Museum’s Education initiatives. This program is supported in part by the Sally Lanagan Fund.
