Jack of Guinea
There was a sizeable African population in Britain in the 18th century. While some were free citizens, many others had arrived in Britain to be the domestic servants of slave-holding plantation owners. This print, and the accompanying poem by Thomas John Dibdin (1771-1841), illustrates the potential life story of one of those African servants, whose existence and experiences were determined by the people and social forces that he encountered in the Atlantic world.
