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.

    Either there is and note of irony in this or she's trying to find the silver lining in a pretty messed-up cloud: ONCE I REDEMPTION NEITHER SOUGHT NOR KNEW. (Report) Reply
