Finally in the late 1820s and early 1830s a new more radical form of abolitionism came onto the main stream. Immediate abolitionism was the belief that slavery should end now and it was morally and constitutionally wrong. Although this form of abolitionism is attributed to William Lloyd Garrison (white abolitionist 1805-1879), African American abolitionists had demanded for an immediate end to slavery for years. “Black abolitionism was the parent of the white crusade.” One of the most influential voices to the immediate end of slavery was David Walker. 1 David Walker was born in Wilmington, North Carolina, in 1785.

The Christian church's main justification of slavery is based on Genesis 9:25-27. (Haynes, 2) Early America was primarily Anglo-Saxon protestant, and practiced a religion that was strictly based on the teachings of the Bible; more specifically the Old-Testament.

And if it is confirmed, that the Bible was misinterpreted, we must be able prove such misinterpretation?
