A Whole-Souled Woman: Prudence Crandall and the Education of Black Women
by Susan Strane
In 1833, Prudence Crandall opened the first private boarding school for black girls in New England. The village vigilantes resorted to violence and forced the school to close in 1834, whereupon Crandall "took to the prairie"--a dramatic story of one woman's incredible courage.
