Take a Walk in Sojourner Truth’s Shoes

September 11 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

Free

This is an in-person class; participants will meet at the Sojourner Truth statue at the corner of Park and Pine Streets, Florence, MA.

This special offering is a guided tour via the Florence African American Heritage Trail, which provides an opportunity to see the homes and historic places where a rich legacy of abolition and women’s rights resides. This Trail commemorates the Florence of the mid-1800s, when Sojourner Truth lived in this small Massachusetts community. Engaging the local community to explore historic Florence – both physically and virtually – is the cornerstone of the Sojourner Truth Memorial Committee’s mission to honor her legacy. To that end, we offer walking tours of the African American Heritage Trail to the local community.

[Note: The tour is about 1 mile long; please wear comfortable walking shoes and feel free to bring a snack if you wish. There will be a group discussion following the walk of how Sojourner Truth’s life is relevant to today’s social issues.]
