Phillis Wheatly

Most of you have probably never heard of Phillis Wheatly--then again maybe you have. I just finished a great (fast) read of her life. The book is called, "Hang a Thousand Trees with Ribbons" by Ann Rinaldi. It's a historic fiction novel about the first African American Poet. An inspirational piece reminding me not only of the American freedom I am so blessed to have but also the freedom that reading and writing has given and will continue to give me in my life!
