The first African American Author

The first know African American Author was Jupiter Hammon. He wrote a poem called  “An Evening Thought: Salvation by Christ with Penitential Cries”. This is a really good poem in my opinion. I think it was about Jesus and his salvation for his people( Hammon speaking to African Americans).
