The Lloyds and Jupiter Hammon

Andrew Tharler, Education and Engagement Director (Preservation LI)

Thursday, June 20th

12:00-2:30 pm


This discussion will focus on the life and writing of Jupiter Hammon, the first published Black American poet who was enslaved by the Lloyd family on Long Island in the 18th century. Born in 1711, Hammon witnessed the growth of the American colonies, the Revolutionary War, and the founding of the United States. His essays and poems offer powerful insights into the moral conflicts between liberty and slavery and raise questions about resistance, authorship, and the path towards justice.
