Lydia Maria Child

The Quest for Racial Justice

Lori Kenschaft

Oxford Portraits

  • Shows how Child dramatically transformed from literary figure to antislavery activist.
  • Presents the life of the dynamic nineteenth-century writer who, through her pen and at great personal cost to her literary career, spoke out for those silenced in society -- slaves, Native Americans, women, and the poor.
  • A riveting look into how Child helped ignite the Abolitionist movement.
