…This is Mark Gagliardi? Original Drunk History could not be more formative to my life. I still, to this day, think of this every time Alexander Hamilton comes up, which in Con Law, IS A LOT.
I’m so glad I am finally coming back to his sober comic stylings. Wow.
Also if someone has somehow not watched original flavor Drunk History… Friend, you’re missing out.
The SAT is stupid. Don’t worry about it.
hah, thanks! i will take this advice to heart.
according to rowan, playing bananagrams counts as preparation for the SAT
but i’m not 100% sure that is true
less than 24 hours until the SAT?

Angelina Weld Grimké, poet, writer and teacher
[February 27, 1880 – June 10 1958]
Leaves, that whisper, whisper ever,
Listen, listen, pray;
Birds, that twitter, twitter softly,
Do not say me nay;
Winds, that breathe about, upon her,
(Since I do not dare)
Whisper, twitter, breathe unto her
That I find her fair.
Rose whose soul unfolds white petaled
Touch her soul rose-white;
Rose whose thoughts unfold gold petaled
Blossom in her sight;
Rose whose heart unfolds red petaled
Quick her slow heart’s stir;
Tell her white, gold, red my love is;
And for her, —for her.
GUYS. GUYS. I thought I wrote my 332 on this lady. And since I had no idea she wrote poetry, I was doubtful for a second, but I sourced them, and they are totally real. It’s just that I actually wrote about a different, related person, who had the same name. (The entire Grimké family, when they weren’t being Charleston’s idle slave-owning rich, were super badass.) This Angelina’s father was the son of the head of the Grimké family and a slave nurse. He was pretty cool, apparently, he became a lawyer, married a white woman and had this daughter, who wrote poetry that was rejected from some magazines because of its “implied threat of a bloody rising on the part of the negro.” Damn.
I am brimming over with information about his two aunts, though, so let me tell you another story. This one is about Sarah and Angelina Grimké, who helped him get to law school, and one of which was this woman’s namesake.
