A Woman Called Truth

May 13 – 22, 2011

By Sandra Fenichel Asher

A Woman Called Truth celebrates the remarkable, faith-filled journey of Sojourner Truth, from the day she is sold away from her family as a young girl, through her struggle to free herself and her son, to her emergence as a popular and respected advocate of abolition and women’s rights. Sandra Asher’s award-winning script beautifully underscores Sojourner Truth’s actual words with authentic slave songs, spirituals and folk songs.
