Date(s) - 02/21/2017
This program tells the story of Isabella Baumfree, who changed her name to Sojourner Truth and walked through Long Island and Connecticut, preaching Gods truth and plan for salvation. After months of travel, she arrived in Northampton, Massachusetts, and joined The Northampton Association of Education and Industry, a utopian community where she met and worked with abolitionists such as William Lloyd Garrison and Frederick Douglass.
