Travel back in time in this dramatic portrayal of Sarah and Angelina Grimke, slaveholders' daughters turned abolitionists in 1838.  The Grimke sisters visited more than 70 Massachusetts towns to speak on the horrors of slavery, swaying the direction of the anti-slavery debate.  Experience the powerful story of two inspiring women performed by Andover residents Susan Lenoe and Lani Peterson.
