First World Theatre Ensemble in collaboration with
Quintessence Theatre Group presents
"SOJOURNER" WILL BE PRESENTED MAY 10 - 23, 2021 AS A FULL VIRTUAL PRODUCTION, PRERECORDED AND AVAILABLE ON DEMAND FOR AUDIENCES TO WATCH WHEN THEY LIKE.
Join Sojourner Truth backstage before she speaks for the Women's Suffrage Movement. Now quite old, Sojourner Truth shares her story of enslavement not in the American South, but in the North, as well as her dramatic escape and the subsequent fight to tear down slavery across the country. This devastating yet inspiring tale provides a compelling and personal lens into pre-Civil War America and Sojourner Truth’s extraordinary life.
A riveting intense one-person show stars Zuhairah McGill who plays Sojourner Truth, the abolitionist, women’s rights activist and author who was born into slavery and eventually became a confidante to Abraham Lincoln and master debater with Frederick Douglass.
Directed by Alexander Burns and Zuhairah McGill
