Peeks Into the Past: Tales of Sojourner Truth

Sojourner Truth gave Battle Creek its first taste of national acclaim simply by choosing to live here. In the 19th century, the former slave, abolitionist and women's rights activist was known from the eastern seaboard to the western frontier, and none who heard her speak would never forget her. In collaboration with the Sojourner Truth Center for Liberation and Justice, Willard Library presents a retrospective on the life of this warrior for social justice.

The program will be recorded to air later on AccessVision.
