The Life and Legacy of Jupiter Hammon (1711–ca.1806) will be the topic of the next Huntington Historical Society Lunch and Learn virtual event.
Preservation Long Island Curator, Lauren Brincat, and Education and Public Programs Director, Darren St. George, will discuss the remarkable life and work of one of the first published African American authors who was born into slavery in Lloyd Harbor, New York. While enslaved at Joseph Lloyd Manor, Jupiter Hammon wrote powerfully about the social and moral conflicts slavery raised in the newly formed United States.
