This chapter looks at the Grimké sisters' upbringing and family background. Sarah Moore Grimké was born in 1792 in Charleston, South Carolina. The world of Sarah Grimké's childhood was one of a well-ordered system of hierarchies. She rebelled against the culture of the South in which she was brought up. In 1805 her little sister Angelina was born and the path her life was to take was set.
