Sojourner Truth (1797-1883): Ain't I A Woman?

Delivered 1851 Women's Convention, Akron, Ohio

Actress Alfre Woodard performs a very moving piece from abolitionist, women's rights proponent, and former slave Sojourner Truth that was originally delivered in 1851. Yep, before the Civil War, before the right to vote for anybody but white men ... THAT 1851.
