wasnt sierra leone founded largely by former slaves; in contrast to lincoln's liberia? i am a little fuzzy on this one.

yeah douglass is certainly not the end-all; life and times is perhaps the most famous slave narrative out there though his persuasive powers as an orator and writer cannot be undermined.
doctrine's like walker's appeal had more far-reaching benefits for blacks. i knew delaney worked with douglass and later served in the civil war before heading to the motherland, but had was unaware he was an organizing any sort of mass exodus; will have to check that out...
