She learned of the evils of slavery while growing up on a plantation in South Carolina. As a young girl, she secretly gave reading and writing lessons to one of her family's slaves and also taught weekly Bible lessons to the enslaved children who worked on her father's plantation.
She challenged the hypocrisy of a church that touted its inclusiveness but denied true membership to slaves. Later in her life, she joined the Quaker community.
