Phillis Wheatley and Elizabeth Keckley were born into slavery, became free, and built a lasting legacy. Join us on February 4, 2021, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET (4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. PT) as we learn about their lives and take a close look at the poetry of Phillis Wheatley (1753-1784) and the autobiography of Elizabeth Keckley (1818-1907), one of the most sought-after dressmakers in Washington DC.
