As an adult, I realize that Sojourner Truth has been watching over me for most of my life

Dr. Williams-Myers always found it odd that Sojourner Truth’s story was never taught in school history. Especially considering that for his entire life she’s been watching over him, walking with him. Then, now, and tomorrow.

“It was amazing to me that Sojourner’s story was never taught in school history.  It’s just one more example of how the history of Africans in America has been taught as if history shaped the Africans instead of how it really is: Africans and their descendants have profoundly shaped American history.”

Watch the video below of Dr. Williams-Myers performing his story, which debuted at Black Stories Matter: Truth to Power on June 21, 2019.
