We’d like to take a moment to wish our beloved icon and Queen of Poetry a Happy Birthday… Happy Birthday Ms. Phillis Wheatley! We celebrate you and your contributions to American Poetry. Thank you for walking in the footprints paved by Lucy Terry Prince and Jupiter Hammon to open the door for George Moses Horton and the vast array of Black Poets since forth. We thank you for giving birth to African-American Literature and impregnating the world with Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral.
