Six@Six Lecture Series
Check out a Virtual Season of Six@Six
Six@Six is an annual series of community lectures by NKU’s faculty and students. The series showcases the scholarship and creative work on campus by discussing that work in the community. Normally hosted at venues around the region, including Behringer-Crawford Museum, the series has moved to a special “mini-series” of Six@Six talks using the magic of Zoom and Facebook.
Six@Six - The Grimké Sisters: Abolitionists to Suffragists
The only southern white women to ever become leading abolitionists, Sarah and Angelina Grimké worked tirelessly to expose the prejudices of American society in the 19th century. The Grimké sisters left comfortable lives as part of the Planter elite in the American South, they converted to Quakerism and dedicated their lives to reform. Their compelling story offers revisions to both the history of women's suffrage and abolition. This lecture will focus on the Grimké sisters' lives, their advocacy, and situate their compelling story within the broader American historical context.
