History 122 AC: 2 nd Midterm Notes 2/22 1831: Revolutionaries, Liberators, and Apologists Gradualism - a strategy of antislavery supporters to work within the system with cooperation of slaveholders. It was the dominant form of antislavery agitation. It died in the 1830’s because of the strident rhetoric of slaveholders. In America, the primary goal of gradualism was colonization. American Colonization Society - founded in 1860 to promote the colonization of Africa by free slaves. It was central in the founding of Liberia, and its goal of colonization united both proslavery and antislavery proponents. In 1855, the unity was shattered when this goal was attacked by both sides. Liberia - the intended destination and future home of emancipated slaves. It was central to the goals of colonization and gradualism. The American Colonization Society played a central role in bringing freed blacks to Liberia. The idea of sending freed blacks to Africa was highly criticized by immediatists like Walker. They didn’t see Africa as their homeland; America was! David Walker - author of Appeal to the Colored Citizens , a pamphlet written in 1830.

It was published weekly in Boston until the end of slavery. It was a symbol of the radical abolitionist movement. Nat Turner - a Virginian slave and self-anointed minister, he led a slave revolt in 1831 after viewing a solar eclipse. He and the 60 slaves who followed him murdered 55 whites, and were put down by the South.
