Reading Quiz ONE: Banneker's Letter

In his letter to Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Banneker writes that there exist "rights of human nature." It seems these rights of human nature are somewhat different than what we mean by human rights. The "human nature" in question here comes from "laws" that Bennaker believes makes every human being equal. So what for Bennaker makes human beings equal to one another? Where does that equality come from?
