Wheatley’s poems inspired a generation

first_img TAGSPhillis Wheatley Previous articleNew Apopka police officer sworn-inNext article4 undeniable reasons to travel in 2017 Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Black History Month Feature: Phillis Wheatley LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Phillis Wheatley was the first black poet in America to publish a book. She was born in 1753, in West Africa and brought to New England in 1761, where John Wheatley of Boston purchased her as a gift for his wife. Although they brought her into the household as a slave, the Wheatleys took a great interest in Phillis’s education. Many biographers have pointed to her precocity; Wheatley learned to read and write English by the age of nine, and she became familiar with Latin, Greek, the Bible, and selected classics at an early age. She began writing poetry at thirteen, modeling her work on the English poets of the time, particularly John Milton, Thomas Gray, and Alexander Pope. Her poem “On the Death of the Rev. Mr. George Whitefield” was published as a broadside in cities such as Boston, New York, and Philadelphia and garnered Phillis Wheatley national acclaim. This poem was also printed in London. Over the next few years, she would print a number of broadsides elegizing prominent English and colonial leaders.Wheatley’s doctor suggested that a sea voyage might improve her delicate health, so in 1771 she accompanied Nathaniel Wheatley on a trip to London. She was well received in London and wrote to a friend of the “unexpected and unmerited civility and complaisance with which I was treated by all.” In 1773, thirty-nine of her poems were published in London as Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral. The book includes many elegies as well as poems on Christian themes; it also includes poems dealing with race, such as the often-anthologized “On Being Brought from Africa to America.” She returned to America in 1773.After Mr. and Mrs. Wheatley died, Phillis was left to support herself as a seamstress and poet. It is unclear precisely when Wheatley was freed from slavery, although scholars suggest it occurred between 1774 and 1778. In 1776, Wheatley wrote a letter and poem in support of George Washington; he replied with an invitation to visit him in Cambridge, stating that he would be “happy to see a person so favored by the muses.” In 1778, she married John Peters, who kept a grocery store. They had three children together, all of whom died young. Because of the war and the poor economy, Wheatley experienced difficulty publishing her poems. She solicited subscribers for a new volume that would include thirty-three new poems and thirteen letters, but was unable to raise the funds. Phillis Wheatley, who had once been internationally celebrated, died alone in a boarding house on December 5, 1784. She was thirty-one years old. Many of the poems for her proposed second volume disappeared and have never been recovered. February 18, 2017 at 4:50 pm UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 3 COMMENTS Reply Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 I googled around and found out where the bronze statue is located. It is in Boston, Ma. That is where she was brought to, Boston Harbour, way back in the mid 1700’s on the slave ship from where she was kidnapped and taken away from her parents in West Africa, and was sold there in Boston to a couple who were very well- to- do, as a servant for his wife. Their last name was Wheatley. She was a young child, and somewhat sickly. She was given the first name Phillis, after the name of the slave ship, which was The Phillis. It was fascinating reading about her, but so sad and truly tragic that a innocent child could be snatched and sold into the bondages of slavery. I never knew of the tragic story behind the name Phillis Wheatley, I just knew that she was a intelligent lady who wrote poems, and became famous for her writings. Today slavery continues in our world, as human trafficking, right here in Central Florida, as well as around the world.

CONTEXT / The building is designed on urban lot no. 66, urban zone no. 9 within the boundaries of Location Study for Sector 27 and Sector 28, Krašići, Municipality of Tivat in Montenegro, in direct vicinity of the sea coast. The lot is positioned on the southern shore of the Tivat Bay. Terrain is facing north with direct – undisturbed view of the bay. Programme solution is aligned with functional, aesthetic and technological concept, after which Detailed Design was prepared.Save this picture!Floor PlanIn addition to relatively densely developed and planned structures in the surrounding, the building is at solid distance from surrounding lots at 3-5m spacing. At the boundaries with the coastal walkways, there is also 5 m spacing. The ground floor is fully adjusted to the terrain configuration, and planned land use allows for maximal exploitation of surfaces and good connection with all contents at the ground floor. Building is facing north-south along the length of building. Master day and night-time zone are facing east, apartments at the semi-basement level are northward orientation, and children zone is facing west.Save this picture!© Slaven VulisACCESS /Main connection is via designed road. Parking is organised within the lot, in the zone between construction and regulation line with 5 envisaged parking spaces. Pedestrian entrance is located next to the vehicular with the access path. In addition to this vehicular access, another will be formed on the lower side of the lot, from the seaside walkway. This provides good connection and fruitfulness through different thematic sections. Given levelling of the space, stairs are combined with shoring, architectural elements typical for this area.Save this picture!© Slaven VulisCONCEPT / Terrain configuration with initiated status, constraints presented in urban and technical requirements as well as the programme aligned with the client, define spatial forming of the structure. In respect to shapes, two structures are dominant, with finishing layer made of dark timber coating. Height of dominant structures is 9m, which are connected along the longer side of the lot with low linear fragment whose role is to be binding, functional and formal “tool”, at the same time tightly connected with the ground processed with natural stone. Despite substantially big area for a family villa, the concept of broken down forms and dark materialisation of basic cubes, is good key and manner of good integration into very sensible landscape of the Tivat bay.Save this picture!© Slaven VulisLANDSCAPE DESIGN / required different composition of greenery both in terms of distribution and selection of species and shapes of vegetation which will contribute to the exclusivity of the very ambience.

Call for release of cameraman Sami Al-Haj as he completes fourth year in Guantanamo

first_imgNews June 12, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for release of cameraman Sami Al-Haj as he completes fourth year in Guantanamo Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says RSF_en News April 28, 2021 Find out more WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists United StatesAmericas News to go further NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Follow the news on United States Organisation Reporters Without Borders today reiterated its condemnation of the arbitrary detention of Sudanese assistant cameraman Sami Al-Haj of the pan-Arab TV station Al-Jazeera, who today completes his fourth year in the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.Arrested by the Pakistani army on the Afghan border in December 2001, Al-Haj was handed over on 7 January 2002 to the US military, who initially held him in Afghanistan. The fourth anniversary of his transfer to Guantanamo on 13 June 2002 comes as the controversy about the detention centre has been revived by the suicides of three prisoners on 10 June.“This sad anniversary adds to the events of the past few days and illustrates the need to put an end to the legal and humanitarian outrage that is Guantanamo,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call for Al-Haj’s immediate release as he has been held in Guantanamo for four years without any grounds. No charges have been brought against him but he continues to be subject to indefinite imprisonment. Furthermore, his lawyer says he has throat cancer and needs treatment that he could never get in prison.”Al-Haj’s case is covered in detail in “Where the United States imprisons journalists”, a report published by Reporters Without Borders in February about the risks the media face in Iraq and about the journalists held by the US military in Iraq and Guantanamo. According to his British lawyer, Clive A. Stafford-Smith, he has been questioned more than 130 times during the past four years in Guantanamo, in the course of which his interrogators have voiced threats against his family, especially his daughter. The interrogations have for the most part aimed at getting him to say there is link between Al-Jazeera and Al-Qaeda. His detention is targeted at Al-Jazeera and is an expression of the US government’s open hostility towards the Qatar-based satellite news station.The condition in which Al-Haj are being held are deplorable. He is mentally very debilitated and has been subject to torture, including torture of a sexual nature, according to Stafford-Smith, who recently voiced concern about his suicidal tendencies. “He has now been held for four years without charge, without trial, without a single visit or phone call with family or friends. He has been brutally treated. He is told by the United States that based on remarkably weak evidence, the source of which is unknown, he can be held in prison for the rest of his life. ,” Stafford-Smith said.Al-Haj’s case is far from being isolated. Six hundred other people are also imprisoned as part of the “world war against terrorism.” Reporters Without Borders joins the many political leaders and international bodies such as the UN in calling for the closure of the Guantanamo military detention centre.The US supreme court is expected to issue a ruling in the coming weeks on the legality of the special military courts set up by President George Bush to try the Guantanamo detainees. These courts were created to avoid having to bring the detainees before civilian courts because of the limited and often classified nature of the evidence against them.

Reporters Without Borders expressed surprise at the decision, which came only a few days after the Council had allowed another pan-Arab satellite station, Al-Arabiya, to resume its activities in Iraq after a two-month ban.The Council banned Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya last 23 September from covering its activities and all official events for two weeks for allegedly encouraging political violence and the murder of Council members and US and British troops. The move followed an assassination attempt three days earlier on Council member Akila al-Hashimi.

It’s so sad really to see how so many people have suffered but at least this might help them out.”EZ Living Furniture of Tipperary Road and City East Retail Park, Limerick rallied behind the efforts of the St Mary’s Aid Flood Relief campaign by donating a number of sofas to those worst affected by tidal floods.Pat O’Sullivan, of Limerick FC and Galtee Fuels in Askeaton said they have delivered and packed 100 tonnes of sand free for distribution to areas at risk of flooding, along with five tonnes of coal to warm people’s houses.“These are our own people and we should all be in this together. What’s going on here is deprivation, and as a community we should be helping each other as much as we possibly can. We’re trying to make sure the fuel goes to the right people. There’s nobody going to be left short.”Donations can be made by cheque, payable to St. Mary’s Parish – Flood Relief Fund and given to local parishes who will forward it to St Mary’s Parish.
