Ahead of Her Time: Abby Kelley and the Politics of Antislavery by Dorothy Sterling

“[The author] tells this remarkable story with honesty and compassion. Readers will find a wealth of new information not only about Kelley??s outstanding contribution to abolitionism but about the movements to bring about the end of slavery and to advance the cause of women.” ??"Mari Jo Buhle, Brown University

In the tumultuous years before the Civil War, a young white woman from a Quaker background came to embody commitment to the cause of antislavery and equal rights for black people. Abby Kelley became the abolitionist movement??s chief money-raiser and organizer and its most radial member. She traveled hundreds of miles to awaken the country to the evils of slavery, braving hardship and prejudice as well as opening the way for other women, black and white, to take leadership roles. Now the full story of this principled woman has been told in Dorothy Sterling??s compelling biography.
