Full description of the book David Walker's Appeal to the Coloured Citizens of the World:

In 1829 David Walker, a free black born in Wilmington, North Carolina, wrote one of America s most provocative political documents of the nineteenth century, Walker s Appeal to the Coloured Citizens of the World. Decrying the savage and unchristian treatment blacks suffered in the United States, Walker challenged his afflicted and slumbering brethren to rise up and cast off their chains. Walker worked tirelessly to circulate his book via underground networks in the South, and he was so successful that Southern lawmakers responded with new laws cracking down on incendiary antislavery material. Although Walker died in 1830, the Appeal remained PDF a rallying point for African Americans for many years to come, anticipating the radicalism of later black leaders, from Malcolm X to Martin Luther King, Jr. In this new edition of the Appeal, the first in over thirty years, Peter P. Hinks, the leading authority on David Walker, provides a masterly introduction and extensive annotations that incorporate the most up-to-date research on Walker, much of it first reported by Hinks in his highly acclaimed biography, To Awaken My Afflicted Brethren. Hinks also includes a unique appendix of documents showing the contemporary response from North and South, black ePub and white to the Appeal itself and Walker s attempts to distribute it in the South. Historians and political activists have long recognized the importance of Walker s Appeal. At last we have an edition worthy of its persuasive immediacy and its enduring place in American history. "
