Appeal to the Christian Women of the South

Portada
American Anti-Slavery Society, 1836 - 36 páginas

Written in 1836, this abolitionist essay is unique because it is the only anti-slavery appeal made by a Southern woman to other Southern women. Author AngelinaGrimk uses plain, firm assertions and a personal tone as she argues that abolition, in addition to being a moral requirement, would be beneficial to a woman's place in Southern society. Grimk grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, surrounded by slaves and slave culture. Radical abolitionists (including the American Anti-Slavery Society) were enthusiastic about her Appeal. However, few Southern women were convinced, and copies of her essay were publicly burned in South Carolina.
