David Walker’s Appeal: To the Coloured Citizens of the World, but in particular, and very expressly, to those of the United States of America

(Paperback and Public Domain)

David Walker called for the abolition of slavery and equal rights for Blacks. As a Christian himself, he challenged the hypocrisy of American Christians supporting slavery, and through a historical/critical theological lens (through the Bible and western civilization), masterfully, charged the nation’s governmental and church leaders with creating a chattel system of slavery worse than anything experienced in the bible or across modern history.
