Discover the remarkable life and poetry of Phillis Wheatley, who joined OSMH as a full member on this day in 1771- a day we now recognize at 'Phillis Wheatley Day.' Kidnapped from Africa as a child and sold as a slave in Boston, she became an international celebrity with the publication of her book in 1773. Activities are free with museum admission. Join us hands-on activities throughout the day.
