Hang a Thousand Trees with Ribbons is a 1996 historical novel by Ann Rinaldi. The story, told in first-person narration, follows the life of Phillis Wheatley, the first African-American poet. The story recounts her capture by black slavers in Africa and the horrors of the Middle Passage as experienced by a woman of intelligence and artistic ability when society assumed Africans were not endowed with either.
