"Finding the Grimkes in Charleston: Using Feminist Historiographic and Archival Research Methods to Build Public Memory"
Presented by Dr. Amy Gerald, USC Lancaster Assistant Professor of English
Friday, March 24, Noon-1 p.m.
Sarah and Angelina Grimke were influential 19th-century abolitionist agents and women’s rights activists. Yet in their hometown of Charleston, there is almost no public mention of them. How do you find evidence of people who have been erased from their community? Join us to hear about Dr. Gerald’s journey to help recover the Grimke Sisters in South Carolina.
The lecture will be held both in person and via Zoom.
