Thursday’s Post & Courier has a front page article about Lee Ann’s campaign to pay for the historical marker and how she’s scheduled special tours as part of the project.

“Charleston tour guide Lee Ann Bain will offer her Original Grimké Sisters Tour on May 29 and 30, with all proceeds going to the funding of a historical marker to Archibald and Francis Grimké, the nephews of abolitionists Angelina and Sarah Grimké.Reservations can be made at http://grimkesisterstour.com/ Direct donations to the marker can also be made via Bain’s Facebook fundraiser at https://www.facebook.com/donate/4184404114905530/
