Description
The American antislavery movement was electrified in the mid-1830s by Angelina Grimke, a young woman who dared to speak in public in a time when women were seen and not heard. A devout Christian, she had fled her slave-holding South Carolina family and headed North to Philadelphia. With her sister Sarah she traveled through New York and New England speaking to curious crowds who wound up as converts to the antislavery cause. As she defended her right to speak, Angelina sowed the seeds of the women's rights movement as well.

This first biography follows Angelina from early struggles to reconcile her beliefs in freedom and equality with a life of Southern luxury, to her career as a reformer, her marriage to abolitionist Theodore Weld, and the culmination of her public life as the first female to address a political body -- the Massachusetts state legislature.
