This book is about Angelina Grimké
Dive into the compelling world of "On Slavery and Abolitionism: Essays and Letters," a profound collection that showcases the transformation of the Grimké sisters from daughters of a Southern slave-owning family to pioneering abolitionists. Published by Penguin Classics on May 5, 2015, this book presents the historic writings of Sarah and Angelina Grimké, whose lives are vividly reimagined in Sue Monk Kidd's novel "The Invention of Wings." Initially galvanized into action by the harsh realities of slavery witnessed during their upbringing and further influenced by their adopted Quaker beliefs, the sisters became the first female agents for the American Anti-Slavery Society. Their powerful letters and essays form an essential commentary on racial injustice, echoing through the ages as both a call to action and a beacon of hope. High school students will find in these pages not only a testament to the power of personal conviction but also an enduring dialogue on equality and rights, making it an invaluable addition to their study of history and human rights.
