The Grimké Sisters from South Carolina

Gerda Lerner

University of North Carolina Press

The next dramatic events in the sisters's lives centered on the reaction to their activities in their home town, Charleston. The Charleston police warned their mother that Angelina wasn't to enter the city again. Any attempt would lead to arrest, they warned. At this time, in the mid-1830s, by way of antislavery activism, Sarah would move to a higher level of feminist consciousness and with it to independent thought. The two sisters were agreed that their main goal was to lecture to the women of New England on the subject of abolition.
