Sojourner

First World Theatre Ensemble in collaboration with Quintessence Theatre Group presents an on-demand virtual production of Richard LaMonte Pierce’s SOJOURNER.

Directed by Alexander Burns and Zuhairah McGill

EXPERIENCE SOJOURNER FOR 48 HOURS OF YOUR CHOICE, ON-DEMAND.

Riveting... Intense... Join Sojourner Truth backstage before she speaks for the Women's Suffrage Movement. Now quite old, Sojourner Truth shares her story of enslavement not in the American South, but in the North, as well as her dramatic escape and the subsequent fight to tear down slavery across the country. This devastating yet inspiring tale provides a compelling and personal lens into pre-Civil War America and Sojourner Truth’s extraordinary life. 

A one-person show starring Zuhairah McGill who plays Sojourner Truth, the abolitionist, women’s rights activist and author who was born into slavery and eventually became a confidante to Abraham Lincoln and master debater with Frederick Douglass!
