On January 15th, the 8th grade class will witness a re-creation of the remarkable life of famous abolitionist, feminist, and escaped slave Sojourner Truth. In this program, Kathryn Woods will memorialize this significant figure in American history. The program joins Sojourner Truth at the end of her life where she recalls her early days as a slave, details her relationship with God, and shares poignant stories of her days of fighting for the rights of women, slaves, and ultimately freed people. Ms. Woods uses Sojourner’s own words and the spiritual music she may have sung to recreate this inspiring woman.
This Enrichment Program is made possible by Annual Giving contributions to the LPTO from parents and caregivers like you. Thank you.
