Phyllis Wheatley’s building renovation project

Setty is working closely with the Young Women’s Christian Association - Phyllis Wheatley’s renovation project.

Sharing a little background information on Phyllis Wheatley, it is the story of African-American women with a vision to start a Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) for “Colored” women and girls in the early years of the twentieth century when such a deed was impractical and required great courage. 

The building was named after the poet Phillis Wheatley (May 8, 1753, West Africa – December 5, 1784, Boston, MA).Born in Senegambia, she was sold into slavery at the age of seven and transported to North America. Ms. Phillis Wheatley has the reputation of being both the second published African-American poet and first published African-American woman.
