Laura Towne was a medical student, a Unitarian, and an abolitionist. In 1862 she traveled to South Carolina to work with a group of missionaries known as Gideonites. She and her friend Ellen Murray struggled to provide education for the slaves who had been abandoned by their owners on St. Helena Island. The school they founded is now the Penn Center, preserving the heritage of the Gullah people.
