The Grimké Sisters from South Carolina

Gerda Lerner

University of North Carolina Press

In 1836 the sisters moved to Boston after a time in New York. There they attended reform meetings, parlor meetings, and public meetings. Yet the sisters became conscious of a different spirit in Boston from what they had known in Philadelphia and New York. This chapter describes the issues they encountered in Boston and the changes they saw. With characteristic singlemindedness the sisters concentrated on their work. The sisters met with strong opposition, not for being abolitionaists, but for being women.

Keywords:   Boston, New York, Philadelphia, abolitionists, women, slavery
