The Black Man's Lament -Title Page
This is the title page of Amelia Opie's poem 'The Black Man's Lament.' She was born Amelia Alderson in 1769 and married the painter John Opie in 1798. She was well known as an author in literary circles, but after the death of her husband in 1807, she dedicated much of her time to charitable work in support of organisations such as the Southey Reform Hospital and the British Anti-Slavery Society. 'The Black Man's Lament' or 'How to make sugar,' focuses on the work done by the enslaved population on the sugar plantations in the West Indies.
