outofcharacterquilts Organic cirrus cotton solids, squares of baby blue satin, and David Walker's "Oh Boy Animals" collection for Free Spirit. I love this animal pattern and I think it's out of print (?) so I've been hoarding mine. Pretty typical. Backed in a great neutral cotton, 42" X 34", for sale. #outofcharacterquilts 4d

belowmeans Today in black history we honor and recognize the legacy and trailblazing path of abolitionist and thrift store owner David Walker. David Walker was born a liberated man due to his mothers status as a free slave. Although free he still experienced and witnessed the barbaric misery of slavery in the South. He eventually settled in Boston where he opened a second hand goods and clothing store in the 1820's. He then began organizing with other abolitionists in Boston and went on to publish "David Walker's Appeal to the Coloured Citizens of the World". The appeal highlighted the inhumane conditions of African American slaves and also critically challenged the hypocrisy of a so-called Christian nation. This document was once considered the most notorious and revolutionary documents in American history. David Walker managed to brilliantly disseminate this document by sewing pamphlets into used clothing items that was then distributed throughout the South via sailboats. #cultureshit #belowmeans #dwshf #vintage #thrift #secondhand #springrelease #fashion #blog #mensfashion #instagram #instadaily #blackholocaust #activism #slavery #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #legacy #pioneers #revolution #blacklivesmatter #davidwalker #appeal #blavity #blackpower #unity #oneness 5d

jessfth It's the first day of Black History Month, and today I'm highlighting one of my heroes, David Walker.

David Walker (September 28, 1796 – August 6, 1830) was an outspoken abolitionist and anti-slavery activist. In 1829, he published An Appeal to the Coloured Citizens of the World,a call for black unity and self-help in the fight against oppression and injustice.

The purpose of the document was to encourage readers to take an active role in fighting their oppression, regardless of the risk, and to press white Americans to realize the moral and religious failure of slavery.

There's so much that I could say about this amazing man,but if you're reading this,please take a moment to Google David Walker's Appeal. The e-book is available for free!
