Beschrijving On Slavery and Abolitionism

The daughters of a wealthy and respected Charlestown judge, Sarah and Angelina Grimke grew up with a life of ease, facilitated by the convenience of slavery. Yet their close proximity to inhumane cruelty bred their revulsion towards the practice of slavery, and both sisters rejected their upbringing, moved to Philadelphia and embraced Quakerism.
