Slender and prophetic volume written to the “Coloured Citizens of the World, but In Particular, and very Expressly, to Those of the United States of America”.

David Walker’s Appeal is an uncompromising African-centered  discourse that attacks white injustice, and advocates Black self-reliance.  Its publication in 1830 intensified the debate and struggle against slavery.  More than a petition against slavery, the Appeal is a foundational document from which many contemporary themes in Black political philosophy have evolved. Walker asserts the right of Black people to defend themselves against a common enemy by any means necessary.  Because of this Appeal, David Walker remains one of the most durable political figures of African descent in our history.  His clear presentation of the problems confronting African people in this country is prophetic, and it assures the relevance of the Appeal to contemporary readers.  This a must read for all Africans, activists, non-activists, students, leaders and anyone who wishes to build a solid foundation of understanding as to where we must go.

Pan African City Alive exists because this subject that was relevant in 1830 is still boiling today.
