Born on December 22, 1896, in Macon, Georgia, Katharine Du Pre Lumpkin belonged to a prominent planter family. In March 1957, Lumpkin delivered a lecture at Mills College in Oakland, California. This chapter reproduces Lumpkin’s speech, in which she tackled discrimination and social change in the context of the long-established institution of racial segregation in the South. In making her case, Lumpkin drew on the life of Angelina Grimké, an abolitionist from Charleston, South Carolina.
