The power of words, truth, and knowledge are touchstones for Sojourner Truth. In 1843 she is convinced that she should share the story of her previous life of bondage to aid in the fight against slavery. As she walks and speaks throughout the Northeast, her voice becomes eloquent and influential in her quest to "proclaim liberty." Renee Joshua-Porter presents a total package in this recording. Her rich, deep voice gives powerful support to the courage and conviction of Truth's journey. She augments Rockwell's text with Truth's beloved hymns and a performance of her "Ain't I a Woman" speech, set against an aural backdrop of newspaper headlines. The listener comes away with a strong, vivid sense of Sojourner Truth's impact on the world. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
