9781558490079: An Appeal in Favor of That Class of Americans Called Africans

Published in Boston in 1833, Lydia Maria Child's Appeal provided the abolitionist movement with its first full-scale analysis of race and slavery. Indeed, so comprehensive was its scope, surveying the institution from historical, political, economic, legal, racial, and moral perspectives, that no other antislavery writer ever attempted to duplicate Child's achievement. The Appeal not only denounced slavery in the South but condemned racial prejudice in the free North and refuted racist ideology as a whole.

Child's treatise anticipated twentieth-century inquiries into the African origins of European and American culture as well as current arguments against school and job discrimination based on race.

This new edition―the first oriented toward the classroom―is enhanced by Carolyn L. Karcher's illuminating introduction. Included is a chronology of Child's life and a list of books for further reading.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Over the nine years since she had risen to fame on the wings of her daring maiden novel, Hobomok, A Tale of Early Times (1824), centering around a Puritan woman who marries an Indian and bears him a son, Child had enjoyed intoxicating success. Only a month before the Appeal came off the press, the nation's preeminent journal of letters, the North American Review, had hailed her as "just the woman we want for the mothers and daughters of the present generation" (July 1833, p. 139)....
