Living as a free Black man in Boston, David Walker published his 1829 Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World and sent shockwaves across the nation. This revolutionary pamphlet called on enslaved people to revolt against their masters and compelled white Americans to recognize the moral depravity of slavery. On Tuesday, Nov. 16, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Old North Church & Historic Site will host Dr. Salim Washington who will talk about the life of David Walker, the 19th-century Black abolitionist and author of the history-changing pamphlet. This talk will be the first of a three-part series dedicated to Walker, his work, and his legacy, and reflects Old North’s commitment to telling stories of active citizenship and courageous, compassionate leadership throughout Boston’s history. The online event is accessible with a donation of any amount to support The Old North Foundation’s virtual and on-site programs, which aim to inspire children and adults alike to consider the ways in which they can build a more just and equitable world.
