Works of Poet Jupiter Hammon Featured at Grolier Club

We recently spent a memorable evening at the Grolier Club sharing Jupiter Hammon’s story. Professor of English, Douglas A. Jones, Jr., and Preservation Long Island curator, Lauren Brincat, explored the context of Jupiter’s life and writings and reflected on the challenges that modern-day readers have when interpreting his words. The lecture is now available for online viewing. ⠀
