Abstract

William Lloyd Garrison's (1882/1968) Thoughts on African Colonization ushered in the immediatist phase of the abolitionist movement and directly influenced a new generation of young reformers. It is examined here as an important example of how textual style can function to displace prevailing languages of reform-the accommodationist discourse of the American Colonization Society-with the more radical vocabulary of evangelicalism.
