In 1761, a little girl who came to be named Phillis Wheatley was captured and taken from all she'd known in Africa, and brought to America as a slave.

Phillis Wheatley was just seven years old when she learned her first English word and knew she wanted to learn how to make her writing sing. A natural gift for poetry led Phillis on her journeys that would bring worldwide acclaim and many opportunities to share her faith.

By the time she was twelve Phillis had become famous, even coming to the attention of George Washington himself. She spoke clearly in favour of American Independence of Britain, the end of slavery, and faithfulness to God.
