Long Description
The Spirit of David Walker gives readers information about a forgotten hero of the anti-slavery movement, seldom found in traditional historical works. In an effort to bridge the gap between known historical events of slavery in 18th and 19th century America, James Peters II details the life and work of an American visionary prophet and writer. Walker, a leading abolitionist, envisioned the eventual emancipation of slaves in the South and the war that it would take to accomplish this.
