Lately I’ve been researching Sarah Grimke and her sister Angelina. I was shocked to find out that Sarah, who wrote and spoke out strongly against slavery, grew up in a place surrounded by slavery. After some more digging I found out that when Sarah was a little girl she saw her Dad whip a slave girl. Little Sarah knew that what she saw was wrong, even though it was the way of life all around her. I know that rebelling against your parents isn’t exactly uncommon, but often on important issues you’ll follow their lead. Yet, Sarah Grimke held onto her deep feelings against slavery.
