"Well, children, where there's so much racket, there must be something out of kilter"

So begins Sojourner Truth's historic "Ain't I a Woman?" speech ... words which reverberate over a century to speak to us about racism and sexism today in the stirring final scene of the play

"A Woman Called Truth" chronicles the life of this remarkable woman from the day she is sold away from her family as a young girl, through her struggle to free herself and her son, to her emergence as a popular and respected figure advocating abolition and women's rights

Throughout her life, Sojourner Truth came upon injustice and fought it with uncommon clear-sightedness, courage, and wit

The Play combines her actual words with authentic slave songs, spirituals, and fold songs of the period

It has been honored by the National Endowment for the Arts, the IUPUI Children's Theatre Symposium, and the American Alliance for Theatre and Education

Area staging - runs about 90 minutes
