Great Regulars: To both honor another poet of color

during Black History Month and commemorate Presidents' Day on Monday, this week's Poetry Pairing matches "On Being Brought from Africa to America," a poem by Phillis Wheatley, whose writing was praised by President George Washington, with "A Rare Haven for Gay Men and Lesbians in Harlem" by Gerren Keith Gaynor.
