Publisher's Summary

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 14. 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.

Critic Reviews

“Allyson Johnson’s performance matches McLendon’s text in neither embellishing nor diminishing Wheatley’s triumphs and sorrows. Johnson’s voice is smooth and easy to listen to, and her straight delivery of this compelling narrative is well paced for the assimilation of its bountiful information.” (AudioFile)
