Les soeurs Grimké : de l'antiesclavagisme aux droits de la femme by Angelina Emily Grimké( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le site internet de l'éditeur indique :"En quoi l'histoire des sœurs Grimké peut-elle intéresser le lecteur français contemporain, non spécialiste de l'histoire américaine du XIXe siècle ? Retiendra-t-il d'elles des figures de l'antiesclavagisme radical ou des personnalités féministes avant-gardistes ? Une cartographie de l'histoire des deux soeurs, des lieux d'élection et des lieux de reniement illustre leur itinéraire, du Sud le plus traditionaliste à la Nouvelle-Angleterre, terroir du radicalisme réformiste, ainsi que la gestation de leur révolte personnelle, la formation de leurs prises de position et leur émancipation tant sociale que religieuse et intellectuelle. Plus que leur participation militante au débat public contre l'esclavage, leurs écrits, jamais encore traduits en français, éclairent ce parcours qui, tout en s'appuyant sur la cause de l'antiesclavagisme, développe un argumentaire féministe exemplaire dont le progressisme reste inégalé encore aujourd'hui."
On Slavery and Abolitionism by Sarah Moore Grimké( )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "Born into Southern aristocracy, Sarah and Angelina Grimké grew up in a slaveholding family. Yet, from an early age they rejected the cruelty of slavery. Sarah's life was deeply influenced by the experience of secretly teaching a young house servant named Hetty to read, sparking a lifelong commitment to anti-slavery activism. As adults, Sarah and Angelina embraced Quakerism and dedicated their lives to the abolitionist movement and women's rights, becoming the first female agents for the American Anti-Slavery Society. Their appeals and epistles, including Angelina's letter of support to renowned abolitionist William Garrison, were some of the most eloquent and emotional arguments against slavery ever made by abolitionists. The Grimké sisters did not write solely for clergymen or women, but for everyone. Their words, by lecture or letter, greeted with trepidation and threats in their own time, speak to us now as enduring examples of triumph and hope and as a part of the foundation of our republic."
Lettres sur l'égalité des sexes : 1838 by Sarah Moore Grimké( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sarah et Angelina Grimké, actives militantes de la lutte contre l'esclavage au XIXe siècle, jouèrent un rôle majeur au sein du féminisme naissant aux Etats-Unis. Les arguments bibliques et théologiques qui leur permettent de défendre les droits du Noir face au Blanc servent ainsi à promouvoir la femme. Dans ces Lettres sur l'égalité des sexes, elles condamnent avec une cinglante ironie les traditions masculines et se livrent en particulier à une analyse libre et nouvelle d'un certain nombre de passages bibliques sur les relations entre l'homme et la femme

American slavery as it is; testimony of a thousand witnesses by Theodore Dwight Weld( Book )

3 editions published in 1839 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theodore Dwight Weld (1803-1895), a prominent abolitionist and reformer, was born in Hampton, Connecticut. Following a dramatic religious conversion through the evangelism of Charles Grandison Finney, Weld entered Lane Seminary. There he became active in the abolitionist movement and converted many students to the abolitionist cause. When the faculty issued an ultimatum requiring that students cease their abolitionist work, the students protested. Their actions so upset Lane's board of trustees that Weld and fifty other students left the school. Weld continued to agitate for the abolitionist cause and gained prominence in the west. In 1838, Weld married Angelina Grimke, one of a pair of South Carolina sisters who had shunned their aristocratic status to become antislavery and women's rights activists. Later in life, Weld became interested in experimental education and was an administrator at schools for reformers' children. He was also a forceful advocate for libraries and free access to books, aid for southern blacks, and women's suffrage.Theodore Weld, his wife Angelina Grimke, and her sister Sarah Grimke compiled American Slavery As It Is: Testimony of a Thousand Witnesses, which was published by the American Anti-slavery Society. It was designed to portray the horrors of American Slavery through a collection of first-hand testimonials and personal narratives from both freedmen and whites. The work describes the slave diet, their hours of work and rest, clothing, housing, privations and afflictions. It also includes pro-slavery arguments that the authors refute. American Slavery As It Is was widely distributed and was one of the most influential of the American antislavery tracts
