support immediate emancipation 

 Find a character (person)

Please remember this debate take place during the 1850s.  Before the  Civil War, before Emancipation Proclamation and after Jefferson has been  dead for more than 35 years.

Your  character does not have to be an actual historical figure. You can be,  for example, journalist, politician, teacher, a domestic servant or a  sharecropper. Just make sure that you ground your analysis in academic  sources and you demonstrate you have done all the required work by  integrating it into your debate positions.

Stay in character for  your responses means if you say you are a certain name than each  response should have this person's name or that of the person your are  corresponding with in each response is part of the debating.

Also  no modern day history facts should be used…in this debate Lincoln is  still alive…meaning discussing the Emancipation Proclamation is not  appropriate but the rumor of it can be discussed…remember the  Emancipation Proclamation was a gradual emancipation document because it  only freed slaves in the Confederate states but allowed Union states to  still continue slavery.
