Preservation Long Island has launched a major initiative to reinterpret the 18th-century Joseph Lloyd Manor, where Jupiter Hammon (1711–ca.1806), one of the first published African American authors was enslaved and wrote powerfully about the social and moral conflicts slavery raised in the newly formed United States.
