Category: MyKingston Kids Events
Re-live the life highlights of legendary abolitionist Sojourner Truth as we acknowledge parts of her life including her escape route to freedom. This walk will include brief pit stops with readings along the way and will end with a live in-person reenactment of her famous “Ain’t I A Woman” speech by Deborah Zuill.

Following Zuills speech will be an artists' presentation by Meredith Bergmann and Vinnie Bagwell. Each of these talented sculptors has been commissioned to create larger-than-life sculptures of Sojourner Truth. Ms. Bergmann's statue will be installed in Central Park and Ms. Bagwell's statue will be at the entrance to Walkway Over the Hudson in Highland. They will be on hand to give a slide presentation and talk about their research into Sojourner Truth's life, their monumental artworks, and the power of art to tell our stories.

This is event is made possible by various groups including Scenic Hudson, Kingston Midtown Rising, Midtown Arts District (MAD), The Old Dutch Church, Seasoned Gives, Harambee, Metal House Cider and MyKingstonKids.
