A Woman Named Truth 

Thursday, February 1, 2018

A great African American leader in the 1800s, Sojourner Truth was born a slave but was freed when she was in her 20s. As an abolitionist, religious leader, and advocate for women’s rights, she became a national figure. During the Civil War she aided the Union troops by bringing supplies, working in a hospital, counseling freed slaves, and encouraging soldiers with her sermons and hymns. You’ll be inspired by the life and work of this remarkable woman in this moving new play with music.
