Phillis Wheatley

A Revolutionary Poet

The Library of American Lives and Times

Phillis Wheatley was just another child kidnapped into slavery from Senegal, until she began to show enormous intellectual promise, eventually shocking a room of Boston scholars by translating Ovid at the age of fourteen. Wheatley would go on to become a major voice in the American literary scene and would pave the way for African American writers to come.
