Angelina Grimke Weld

Sarah Moore Grimke’s younger sister, married to Theodore Dwight Weld, another abolitionist. They published a record of the evils of slavery in “American Slavery As It Is”.  The evidence is comprised of personal accounts of eye-witnesses, including those who were victims. Angelina was the first woman to address the Massachusetts legislature in 1836. She wrote the anti-slavery pamphlet: A Letter to the Christian Women of the South – which, although sent down to the Charleston Post Office, were burnt by a mob outside.
