The Grimké Sisters from South Carolina

Gerda Lerner

University of North Carolina Press

Once Angelina Grimké had left the South, she felt relief at no longer being surrounded by slavery. In Philadelphia, she felt much freer and happier. This chapter looks at this next phase in her life. In the North, many of the qualities in her that had made her a rebel and a freak in the South, were commonly accepted. She was accepted by the Quakers at her new home. Here Angelina trained to be a teacher. This period marked the birth of their time as real pioneers of a future freedom.

Keywords:   Angelina Grimké, Philadelphia, Quakers, teacher, South
