Phillis Wheatley Quote

Some view our sable race with scornful eye,
"Their colour is a diabolic die."
Remember, Christians, Negroes, black as Cain,
May be refin'd, and join th' angelic train.


"On Being Brought from Africa to America" lines 5-8, Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral (1773)
