On Being Brought From Africa To America - Poem by Phillis Wheatley

'Twas mercy brought me from my Pagan land,
Taught my benighted soul to understand
That there's a God, that there's a Saviour too:
Once I redemption neither sought nor knew.
Some view our sable race with scornful eye,
"Their colour is a diabolic die."
Remember, Christians, Negro's, black as Cain,
May be refin'd, and join th' angelic train.

    Yes I think she was being sarcastic, as blacks were considered demonic, savage, and unrefined based on the Judaeo-Christian misinterpretation of the Bible. Cursed Children of Ham... Yes in Senegambia there was academia, culture and literacy. the region is Muslim and there were Quranic schools. Teacher from both Guinea and Mali t(Timbuktu) taught in these area even till today.
