About this event:
Join local historian Momma Kemba for dramatic presentations of three important women from America’s history. Interspersed with moving songs - often written by the women she portrays - Momma Kemba’s performances are as entertaining as they are enlightening.
Born into slavery and denied an education, Sojourner Truth dedicated her life to speaking out against slavery, becoming one of the greatest abolitionist orators.
