Phillis Wheatley, American Author and Poet 

Kidnapped and sold into slavery at the age of seven or eight, she was bought by the Wheatley family of Boston. After learning to read and write, she displayed a talent for poetry which the Wheatleys encouraged. In 1773, she traveled to London with the Wheatleys’ son and met prominent people who would become her patrons. There she published Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral, which brought her fame both in England and the American colonies. She was emancipated by the Wheatleys shortly after its publication. In 1775, Wheatley wrote the poem: To His Excellency, George Washington. Washington invited Wheatley to visit him at his headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts, which she did in March 1776.
