a small project / by mrm

for March only. I began it somewhere else, but really I might as well continue it here.

And so I present to you,
March 1st: Philiss Wheatley 
Taken from Africa to the U.S., enslaved, learned to read Greek and Latin, wrote highly acclaimed poetry which made her the first published woman- and first African-American poet, went to London, met George Washington, died a poor scullery maid.

March 2nd: Princess Hijab
Sass and a half. Attacking advertisements. Stirring the pot. Confusing the French. Celebrating ambiguity. A highly functioning sense of hilarity.
