Ahead of Her Time: Abby Kelley and the Politics of Antislavery

This book is about Abby Kelley
"Ahead of Her Time: Abby Kelley and the Politics of Antislavery" unveils the powerful narrative of Abby Kelley, a pioneering figure in the antislavery movement and a champion of gender equality. Published on June 17, 1994, and crafted with depth by Dorothy Sterling, this biography paints a vivid portrait of a young white woman from a Quaker background who transcended societal norms to become a radical force in the fight against slavery and for women's rights during the years leading up to the Civil War. Kelley's role as the movement’s chief fundraiser and organizer showcases her unwavering dedication, as she traveled extensively, facing immense adversity and prejudice, to ignite a national conversation about the atrocities of slavery. Her efforts not only advanced the abolitionist cause but also paved the way for future leaders, irrespective of race or gender. This book is an essential read for those in adult education interested in racial justice and gender equality, providing a profound look at how one individual's fierce commitment can lead to significant societal change.
