With L’Merchie Frazier and Peter Snoad  

Hosted by Old North Church

Wednesday, December 15, 2021  7:00 – 8:30pm

RSVP on Eventbrite

Living as a Black abolitionist in Boston, David Walker published his Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World in 1829 and sent shockwaves across the nation. This revolutionary pamphlet called on enslaved people to revolt against their enslavers and compelled white Americans to recognize the moral depravity of slavery.

Next Wednesday, join Old North on Zoom as we host artist, educator, and activist L’Merchie Frazier and playwright Peter Snoad for a discussion of David Walker’s seminal text. How do the history-changing pamphlet’s charges of greed, hypocrisy, and indifference remain relevant today? 

This talk will be the second in a three-part series dedicated to Walker, his work, and his legacy. Prior participation in our Speaker Series is not required. Scroll below to see the details for part three in our David Walker series!
