The rhetoric of Martin Delany
Calloway, David L
vii, 59 pages
This study examines the rhetoric of Martin Delany. The techniques include a review of the relevant literature along with a rhetorical analysis of The Condition, Elevation, of the relevant literature along with a rhetorical analysis of The Condition, Emigration and Destiny of the Colored People of the United States; Blake, or the Huts of America; and Principia of Ethnology: The Origin of Races and Color. Using the theoretical frame of Chaim Perelman and Lucie Olbrechts-Tyteca's universal audience, I argue that Delany models a way of thinking grounded in logic and reason in order to convince his particular concrete audience that he has the solution for Black elevation.
