PRA Archive #: 

This program tells the life of Sojourner Truth (c. 1797 - 1883), African-American abolitionist and women's rights activist. Prior to the Civil War, Sojourner Truth traveled around the country on foot telling others how she was abused as a slave, how she was sold and exploited, and how she gained her liberty. She began to realize that the freedom of Black Americans and the rights of women were intertwined and her lectures began to include discussions of women's rights. Through her travels she gained massive support for the anti-slavery movement and was an inspiration to all who saw her. Produced by Darcell King.
