Walker, David

Walker, David

(1785–1830) African-American leader; born in Wilmington, N.C. Born a free man in the South, he traveled widely and became greatly concerned over the conditions of his fellow blacks. Moving to Boston (1827), he established a second-hand clothing business. In 1829 he issued Walker's Appeal, an antislavery pamphlet that urged slaves to rise up against their oppressors, and slaveholders to repent. Appearing in the South (1830), the Appeal raised fear among slaveholders, and a price was set on his head throughout the region. After issuing an even more militant appeal to end slavery, he died of natural causes.
