Instructions: Please click on the link above and read this webpage. This 1829 call for a slave revolt by David Walker, a free black living in Boston, rejected the moral suasion and gradualism of the antislavery movement of the time in favor of more radical action on the part of slaves. As you read, note Walker's approach to the issue of slavery and how to abolish it. Why might Walker have been considered a radical at the time?
