Born into an affluent and politically active black family, Charlotte Forten Grimke (1837-1914) was a scholar, reformer, teacher, and writer. Her journals describe her privileged childhood, her sporadic teaching career, her involvement with the anti-slavery movement, her eighteen months teaching the contraband slaves of the South Carolina Sea Islands during the Civil War, and her later work as poet and essayist. Thanks to her keen observation amd meticulous accounts of the people and events that shaped her life, her journals provide a unique and personal view of the Civil War and Reconstruction eras.

"Charlotte Grimké [1837-1914] was such a keen observer and meticulous recorder of the events of her day, her journal survives as an important chronicle of one woman's struggles and accomplishments during this most important era in U.S. history."--Brenda Stevenson, in her Introduction "Charlotte Grimké [1837-1914] was such a keen observer and meticulous recorder of the events of her day, her journal survives as an important chronicle of one woman's struggles and accomplishments during this most important era in U.S. history."--Brenda Stevenson, in her Introduction
