You can join the Looking for Lincoln “A Conversation with Sojourner Truth,” a free online performance, at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Historical impersonator Patricia James Davis will portray Sojourner Truth, who will reminisce about her life’s journey to becoming an abolitionist and suffragette. Truth was born a slave who took her own freedom as an adult, escaping slavery in 1826.
She is famous for her speech “Ain’t I a Woman?” given at the Ohio Women’s Rights Convention in 1851.
The free program is funded by Illinois Humanities. It will livestream on Looking for Lincoln’s Facebook page and YouTube Channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQp6Y0N2aqk&ab_channel=LookingForLincolnHeritageCoalition
