Charlotte Forten Grimké (Birthday)
Join us in celebrating the birthday of Charlotte Forten Grimké. Charlotte was a 3rd-generation suffragist and equal rights advocate. She is a reminder that we make progress by standing on the shoulders of others, and that it can take multiple generations to right wrongs.
** Granddaughter of Charlotte Vandine Forten **
** Daughter of Robert Bridges Forten **
** Niece of Margaret, Harriet, and Sarah Forten **
