Henderson, a professor of history at USC Upstate, will recount the lives of Angelina and Sarah Grimke.

The Grimke sisters were South Carolina natives whose family owned Belmont Plantation in Spartanburg County, where they spent formative summers of their youth.  Hear how their lives in South Carolina influenced them to take up the causes of abolition of slavery and women’s suffrage and take their place among the most influential writers and lecturers of their day.
