“Truth is powerful and it prevails.” ~ Sojourner Truth

March is Women's History Month. As I thought about what to post in celebration of women in history, I remembered a woman who did not appear in any of me elementary or high school English books. I encountered her first as a character in a play at the University of Kentucky in 1964 when I was  Freshman.

I'll not go into the biography of Sojourner Truth; you can find that in many places on the Internet, including HERE. What I shall do is allow Sojourner Truth to speak for herself -- something she did quite well -- in the same words spoken in that play that introduced her to me 46 years ago.

Please take just a moment to listen as Alice Walker reads Sojourner Truth:

Truth is powerful and it prevails.
