- In honor of Black Poetry Day (October 17), StuCo encourages you to pick up some poetry written by Black poets. Explore the poetry of Jessie Redmon Fauset, Robert Hayden, Wanda Phips, or Arna Bontemps. Black Poetry Day was established in 1985 honoring the birth of the first Black poet published in the United States, Jupiter Hammon. The poet is considered the father of African American Literature. Born into slavery, Hammon received an education, learned to read, and was allowed the use of the manor library.
