Angelina and Sarah Grimke
Paige and Riley

Angelina and Sarah Grimke were whites from South Carolina. They lived a luxurious lifestyle with slaves of their own but later on, they did not choose that lifestyle. They were among the first abolitionists to recognize not only womens' rights and female equality but everyone's equality. They devoted their lives to racial and gender equality.

Sarah Grimke wrote a book about how blacks should have equal rights and Angelina filmed a documentary about the evils of slavery. They both attended anti-slavery meetings.
