January 23-27, 2013: "Sojourner" is a biography of Sojourner Truth. "Sojourner" takes a hard look at her life, not only as a woman, but as a slave. It also takes a compelling look at pre-civil war America and what led to the conflict. "Sojourner" tells a grim shameful tale of a young girl sold at auction to a succession of slave masters, set not in the American South, but in the North. While this coming-of-age narrative is filled with acts of random horrific cruelty, it will at times make you laugh, then make you cry, force you to take a look at the morals, values and conditions that shaped America, and instill in you awe at Sojourner Truth's unwavering spirit to overcome –and be moved to "sojourn for the truth... even to the ends of the earth."
