"Lift Up Thy Voice: The Sarah and Angelina Grimké Family’s Journey from Slaveholders to Civil Rights Leaders" offers a profound narrative that captures the transformation of a prominent white slaveholding family into champions of abolitionism and women's rights. In the late 1820s, Sarah and Angelina Grimké boldly renounced their aristocratic lifestyle in Charleston, South Carolina, to advocate for equality in the North. Their journey did not end with their efforts, as they later supported their mixed-race nephews, Archibald and Francis, to become influential African American activists and founders of the NAACP post-Civil War. Published on December 31, 2002, this book spans 150 years, presenting a powerful saga of moral courage and radical change. Ideal for high school students, it explores themes of racial justice and gender equality, challenging readers to reflect on the enduring impact of personal convictions in societal transformations.
