Abstract

In her last public speech Angelina Grimké proceeded despite the siege of the building by an anti-abolitionist mob. This was her only speech to be transcribed — in a shorthand process that was called phonographic. Her oratory shows that she had become adept at improvisation. Bracketed comments about the mob’s assault were added by the transcriber.
