Interesting to read primary texts by a Black man living in England, but god. The 18th century is not for me.

Ignatius Sancho is a rather interesting character from Georgian Britain. Born a slave, Sancho moved in the elite circles of the times and ran his own London based business. He composed music, appeared on stage and is believed to be the first Black Briton to have cast a vote in a British election becoming a symbol for those involved in the anti-slavery movement.

This book includes his memoirs together with the many letters that were written by him during his lifetime and first published in 1782. This work provides the reader with an insight into the mind and thoughts of an eminent Black Briton.
