Join Revolutionary Spaces for a celebration of Phillis Wheatley Peters — a literary prodigy in 18th century Boston who became the first African American woman to publish a book of poetry. Spending most of her life enslaved, Wheatley Peters’ work offers a remarkable look at the time in which she lived.
Charles Coe, a brilliant poet, writer, musician, and Revolutionary Spaces board member, will guide us in an evening of poetry and film to honor and reflect on Wheatley Peters as she continues to be a great inspiration to artists today. A casual reception with light refreshments will follow.
