DAVID WALKER'S APPEAL
By: David WalkerISBN: 0933121385
David Walker's appeal is an uncompromising African-centered discourse that attacks white injustices and advocates Black self-reliance. Its publication in 1829 intensified the debate and struggle against slavery. Walker asserted the right of Black people to defend themselves against a common enemy by any means necessary. More than a petition against slavery, the Appeal is a foundational document from which many contemporary themes in Black political philosophy have evolved.
