1828 - David Walker - In His Words, My Voice

In his words, my voice David Walker gave this remarkable speech “The Necessity of A General Union Among Us” in Boston in 1828. Ancestor Walker was a free-born​ black man from Wilmington, North Carolina whose APPEAL pamphlet​ was one of the very first documented papers that foretold of an insurrection​ if slavery wasn't abolished in this country. Today I salute this remarkable warrior who fought for absolute freedom for people of color while on this planet for 34 years. Remembering always that our black history need not ever be a black mystery.
