Description

In 1850, Sojourner began speaking on women’s suffrage, believing the causes of abolition and women’s rights to be intertwined and equally important. Ms. Truth’s most quoted speech, “Ain’t I a Woman?” was delivered at the Ohio Women’s Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio. Truth also helped recruit black troops during the Civil War for the Union Army, and she worked as a Union nurse.

Dr. Daisy Century and Ms. Sojourner Truth are both powerful singers and very intelligent women. Please join us as we celebrate Ms. Truth’s legacy on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020 at 6pm at the Student Union at Hubbard Hall Auditorium.  Daisy Century will portray Sojourner Truth and give a commanding performance you do not want to miss.
