Documentary Series // Sisterhood SC Suffragist: The Grimke Sisters

March 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


The Library Society is thrilled for the second collaboration with the ETV Endowment of South Carolina and SCETV to screen Sisterhood SC Suffragist: The Grimke Sisters (56 min). Appropriate for Women’s History Month, we look forward to sharing one of a three-part series that premiered during 2020, highlighting South Carolina Suffragists in celebration of the passing of the 19th amendment and the important role that SC had in the national movement. Although best known as fierce abolitionists, Sarah and Angelina Grimke were the first South Carolina Women to publicly advocate for women’s suffrage. The story traces the lives of the Grimke sisters and other SC voices in the struggle for women’s rights from the late 1830’s through the Civil War.

In conjunction with the screening, we are honored to welcome producers Beryl Dakers and Betsy Newman to share additional insights and context on the making of the series as well as answer questions afterward.

Tickets are free with RSVP. Register via the form below.

Please note: 6:00PM – 7:30PM – this event starts at 6pm and will include Q&A following the program.
