SPECIAL EVENT: “Ain’t I a Woman?” Dr. Daisy Century Portrays Sojourner Truth

Thursday, February 15, 2024

Born Isabella Baumfree, the slave from a small town north of New York City changed hands several times, sold by one brutal owner to another just as harsh. In 1826, having been promised freedom, but then cruelly denied emancipation, she walked away and emancipated herself. She had an epiphany, became a devout Christian, and renamed herself Sojourner Truth, after which she began her travels as a preacher. In 1850, Sojourner began speaking on women’s suffrage, believing the causes of abolition and women’s rights to be intertwined and equally important. Dr. Daisy Century gives a commanding performance of Ms. Truth, bringing to life a woman who overcame incredible obstacles to take her rightful place among the leading figures of her day, including Susan B. Anthony, Abraham Lincoln, and Ulysses S. Grant. Dr. Century’s performance encourages her audiences to consider the equal importance of the twin goals of racial and gender parity. Reservations Essential. Call 732-634-0413
