Henriette Delille essay, prayer service and teacher worksheet - Instant Download

A beautiful New Orleans quadroon, Henriette refused to follow the rest of her family and register as white in the 1830 census. Instead she founded a community of black sisters dedicated to serving the slaves. By recruiting her early followers "from among the quadroons slated for concubinage, Henriette made a bold frontal attack on the sexual prerogatives and privileges of white male society, transforming their sassy sirens into sacred sisters. Against palpable historical odds, Henriette founded and nurtured her religious foundation." (Onita Estes Hickes)
