Sisters and Rebels by Jacquelyn Dowd Hall

Descendants of a prominent slaveholding family, Elizabeth, Grace, and Katharine Lumpkin grew up in a culture of white supremacy.  But while Elizabeth remained a lifelong believer, her younger sisters chose vastly different lives using their literary works and organizing efforts to bring the nation’s attention to issues of region, race, and labor. With decades of research, the family’s private papers, and interviews with Katharine and Grace, Sisters and Rebels unfolds an epic narrative of American history through the lives and works of three Southern women.
