Publisher Comments:

Carolrhoda's best-selling Creative Minds Biographies series appeals to a wide range of readers. Written in story format, these biographies also include inviting black-and-white illustrations.

Synopsis:

Sisters against Slavery recounts the lives of Sarah Grimke and Angelica Grimke Weld. These daughters of wealthy Southern planters and slave owners renounced slavery in the 1830's. Through their writings and through a series of lectures delivered in the North, the sisters became famous for their views on slavery and women's rights. Although the sisters were active as speakers and essayists for a relatively short time in the 1830s and 1840s, they reached tens of thousands of people, influenced American views on slavery, and were an inspiration to women's rights leaders for decades to come.

This was a wonderful book. I heard a little bit about Angela Grimke Weld, being given her own slave for her 11th birthday and how it sickened her, and she went on to be one of the first speaking publically about slavery. Story of older sister Sarah actually being Godparent to little sister, pretty amazing and thoughtful. Good read and education for anyone, any age.
