Join Education & Engagement Director, Andrew Tharler, for special extended access guided tours of Joseph Lloyd Manor (ca. 1767) focusing on Preservation Long Island’s on-going work with the Jupiter Hammon Project. Attendees will view a new panel exhibition and audiovisual installation centered on Jupiter Hammon’s (1711–before 1806) life and poetry and step into spaces previously closed to the public.
Joseph Lloyd Manor was once the center of a 3,000-acre provisioning plantation established in the late 17th century. Hammon was one of the many people of African descent enslaved at the site. Considered the first published African American poet, Hammon authored his most significant writings about the moral conflicts of slavery and freedom at Joseph Lloyd Manor.
