Grimké Sisters Tour

First female abolitionists and early trailblazers of women’s rights in America

Growing up in a slave owning family Angelina and Sarah Grimke turned their backs on their home and family to begin a crusade on fighting injustices to women of the day and those enslaved. Known as traitors to their society during their lifetime, 180+ years later these ladies are still influencing current generations. 

Follow in the footsteps of these 2 courageous women and discover how their beliefs and convictions began their personal journey to fight oppression.
