23. Sarah Parker Remond’s Black American Grand Tour

  • Sirpa Salenius (author)
Sirpa Salenius examines a Black American female abolitionist’s European travel in the nineteenth century in ‘Sarah Parker Remond’s Black American Grand Tour’. Remond participated in transatlantic struggles for social justice, moving beyond the borders of her nationality, race, and gender. Her travels and her detachment from her previous set of social conditions enabled her to propose a progressive model of Black womanhood – one of independence, intellectualism, and personal and professional success.
