Published in 1829, David Walker's Appeal delivered a furious indictment of American slavery and racism while articulating the necessity of resisting immoral authority by any means necessary. The significance of Walker's pamphlet is not limited to this ideological message, however. Walker believed that the disparity between the condition of Black Americans and the "unalienable rights" and republican principles laid out in the Declaration of Independence could be a rallying point for Black Americans seeking to be recognized as citizens. Like Thomas Paine, whose 1776 pamphlet Common Sense helped propel the American colonies toward independence, Walker recognized the importance of claiming a public voice through which to communicate with both Black and White Americans, and the utility of using printed documents to do so.
Consider each of the choices separately and select all that apply.


The passage indicates that Walker would probably have agreed with which of the following about the Declaration of Independence?

❑ It presents political ideals that the United States had not lived up to.
❑ It could play a useful role in engendering social progress.
❑ It is often misinterpreted by its most zealous admirers.

Explanation

1) The first question is undoubtly a tough one because the stem says Walker would probably have agreed with

Therefore, whenevr you see such stem it indicates that you should go a lit bit what is strictly cited in to the passage. Going a lit bit more than infer. From this, reading the passage at a closer look Walker believed that the disparity coyuld be overcomed for a better society. A and B are the best choicxes.

2)

References in the passage to the public voice of black people, the utility of using printed documents, black people that should be recognized as citizens. indicate that all 3 answer choices are correct.
