(193) David Walker (1785-1830) from North Carolina, settled in Boston Free African-American Self- made, Leader in the African-American community, chief instigator of abolitionist activism Claim: Slavery is evil and African- Americans must act to remedy the “wretchedness” of their people. a. What rhetorical strategies and techniques do they employ? Tone--> menacing Ethos (Bible---> relating to God) -”...those heathen nations of antiquity, had but little more among them than the name and form of slavery; while wretchedness and endless miseries were reserved, apparently in a phial, to be poured out upon our fathers, ourselves and our children, by Christian Americans! -”God will not suffer us, always to be oppressed” (Walker 195.) “But when I reflect that God is just, and that millions of my wretched brethren would meet death with glory. (Walker 197)” Christians believe that God is their Lord and Savior and is always there to help, he puts them through certain experiences to make them stronger and in the end will be there to bring them to the light. Pathos (Emotional Appeal) -”I therefore ask the whole American people, had I not rather die, or be put to death, than to be a slave to any tyrant, who takes not only my own, but my wife and children’s lives by the inches?” (Walker 195).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
