An Appeal in Favor of that Class of Americans Called Africans

Shipping calculated at checkout.

One of the most important abolitionist works, by one of America's most important women writers. This book is a well-researched argument for the immediate emancipation of slaves. Mrs. Child, in clear, engaging prose, follows the history of slavery, contradicts pro-slavery arguments of racial inequality, and presents the claim that slavery, in any society in which it exists, hurts everyone including those who have profited economically. Mrs. Child's appeal helped to sway many liberal-leaning people of her day towards abolitionism. She willingly gave up her own reputation and livelihood to support a cause that she believed was right.
