“Ain’t I a Woman?” (video)

This was too awesome not to share. Actress Nkechi reenacts Sojourner Truth’s “Ain’t I a Woman?” speech for a TEDx talk.

(I’m hoping that I’m not violating copyright. The video gave the option to share on various social media sites, including Blogger; so hopefully I’m in the clear.)

  1. Reblogged this on multicolouredsmartypants and commented:
    ‘Sojourner Truth was an African-American abolitionist and women’s rights activist. Truth was born into slavery in Swartekill, Ulster County, New York, but escaped with her infant daughter to freedom in 1826.’ (wikipedia)

    I have read a lot about slavery and the history of slavery. William Wilberforce is a personal hero, someone whom I find inspiring as an abolitionist and as a Christian.

    I know less about Sojourner Truth, but you can hear what an incredible woman she was in her own words as spoken here by Nkechi.

    Thank you, Laura, for posting this.

    1. I was so thrilled to find it. I hadn’t ever read the entire speech (though my mom quotes part of it, very dramatically) so parts of it were new to me. I’m glad you enjoyed it, Debbie. Thanks for stopping by.
