Voice of Abolition

Book - 1999
Rate this:
The American antislavery movement was electrified in the mid-1830s when as extraordinary proponent -- a tall, slender woman with blazing blue eyes appeared like a comet from the South. That a lady would make her mind known in public on a social issue at all was remarkable: Women were supposed to be seen and not heard. But for the daughter of slave owners to speak out against slavery -- that was truly astonishing. Based on her diaries, letters, and other primary sources, this biography follows an intense and sometimes difficult woman from childhood to her career as a reformer, her passionate courtship and marriage with abolitionist. Theodore Weld, her later life of service to the cause in spite of chronic ill health.
