  3. A Woman Ain't I: A Depiction of Sojourner Truth


History At Play™, LLC (HAP), has garnered nationwide acclaim for their Immersive Living History Experiences, chronicling the lives of legendary figures who changed society. A Woman Ain't I: A Depiction of Sojourner Truth depicts living historian Kathryn Woods in a one-woman performance memorializing one of the most significant figures in American History. In this special event presented by History At Play™, LLC , join Sojourner near the end of her life, as she recalls her early days as a child, born a slave in New York and who, with the help of God, renamed herself Sojourner Truth to walk away from slavery. Sojourner’s identity blossoms as an evangelist, abolitionist, and seeker for the rights of women. Kathryn Woods breathes life into Sojourner’s own words and infuses the performance with spiritual music Sojourner may have sung to reinvigorate the life of this inspiring spiritual leader. This LIVE program brings the vibrancy of theatrical history and educational escapism direct to your screen.

This VIRTUAL, ABRIDGED performance of A Woman Ain't I: A Depiction of Sojourner Truth is sponsored by The National Archives as part of the National Archives Comes Alive! Young Learners Program. It will be broadcast on YouTube Live HERE.
