A Woman Called Truth by Sandra Fenichel Asher – A Play in One Act Celebrating the Life of Sojourner Truth
A Woman Called Truth is a story of the life and achievements of Sojourner Truth. The play begins at the 1851 women’s rights convention in Akron, Ohio. We then go back in time to 1797 and travel with Sojourner as she remembers some of the extraordinary experiences that shaped her life. We get a glimpse of her highly cruel and unjust treatment as a slave. We experience how she bravely took her freedom and how she fought to free her son. At the end of the play, we learn how she became “Sojourner Truth” and get a taste of her dynamic spirit as an orator as she delivers her famous “Ain’t I a Woman” speech.
A Woman Called Truth is an important story about a significant woman in our country’s history.
